As with Twitter, Airbnb is headquartered in San Francisco, and not in the Valley. The company rented an old warehouse building (he 96 years) in the port area of ​​San Francisco and turned his office into a mini-exhibition. Perhaps this is the most comfortable and bright office is one of those where I visited. Here you can drive a full-fledged tour. By the way, it really is open to visitors.

The main "trick" the office Airbnb - where many workspaces, meeting rooms, dining rooms and other areas of the same shape and design of the apartments and rooms, which are actually rented through Airbnb website in different cities. There are rooms of Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and some other places. Designers choose the most successful deals and recreate them directly to the office area. Unfortunately, it was not possible to take a picture, but there are dozens of rooms. The expression "home furnishings in the office" - is about Airbnb.

Some rooms can be booked on a certain date. They held talks, interviews with candidates, some just in their works or relaxes. Very cool move by Airbnb: people know what exactly they have to work.

First, design rooms engaged in professional designers, but on the third floor has a space of appearance which worked by employees Airbnb. By this floor workers are treated like your home, so the appropriate clearance.

The company moved into the former warehouse building at 888 Brannan Street recently. So the guides did not so much for visitors as for the employees. Now Airbnb head office employs about 200 employees, used to be much smaller.
