At the office on a Sunday

Once again I am completely envious of this work environment that could not be more opposite of the one I have been living with for the past 16 years. The folks working for GitHub in SoMa, San Francisco, have it made 10 times over thanks to the designers at Studio Hatch.

At the core of GitHub technology is social collaboration, which was made physically evident in their 55,000 square foot headquarters. The three story office space includes a variety of work environments to accommodate different work styles and flexibility including multiple cafes, a commercial kitchen, full bar, indoor park, dojo and coder caves. As a company founded in local cafes and bars around the city of San Francisco, it was important to infuse these types of environments throughout the space as a nod to the company’s roots.

The beautiful brick and timber space was once the site of a dried fruit packing warehouse in the early 1900’s. Along with GitHub’s own "ship it" mentality, the design honors the rich roots of the space through the use of vintage shipping containers, deconstructed and rebuilt on site as a reference to the train that rolled right through the ground floor.

Working on a Saturday

You know what I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. Hey I could equally have called this post "Pampering yourself on a Saturday" because this is one commercial space that staff and customers will equally enjoy. Mani? Pedi? Or both?

Working on a Saturday

You would never have to drag me kicking and screaming into my weekend job if I worked at Comma at Byron Bay. I'd be moving right in and never going home. Love the zen like beauty of the simple space (and those rattan chairs by worn). I can see a road trip to this stylish seaside town in my immediate future and a little pampering at this day spa.

Working on a Saturday

It may be a new year with new beginnings that doesn't mean that it isn't still hard heading into work on a weekend. Now if I worked here I'd have no problems at all, especially if I could do some research in the "library". Twitter Paris by RF Studio.
