Google’s offices are generally extravagant, but the Hong Kong office is an exception. This one is just basically a normal office, with Googly colors splashed around for good measure. Usual stuff like good pantry and games are still there.

These pictures are from MTV’s office in Estonia. This office space is the home base for MTV’s Baltic regional operations. The place is very vibrant and full of energy, unlike traditional workplaces. Does not have many cubicles and those classic workstations. If you notice closely, almost all the chairs are different from each other.
The whole place really gives a Work from Home feel..
