Your office pales in comparison to Facebook's new Astor Place location
Facebook has moved into its brand-new Astor Place office space, and there's a high probability that you're going to 'Like' it more than your own office.
Business Insider and Curbed NY have given the world a glimpse into the two-story, Frank Gehry-designed space, and it's pretty much everything you'd expect. Located in the Wanamaker Building, the 185,000sqft office houses 500 employees and features wide-open layouts, exposed ceilings, and plenty of custom art & gaming tables.
If you happen to work at Facebook, or go to the office unveiling party tonight (which of course Facebook is making a 'thing'), you'll immediately discover an actual Facebook Wall, where coworkers are encouraged to post messages (or sign their name... or maybe let everyone know their relationship status...). From there, you'll also discover a host of other super-sweet features inside the building, like a coffee bar and Desimone’s café -- run by Head Chef Nate Eckhaus (if that name sounds familiar, it's because he's worked at places like Eleven Madison Park and Blue Smoke).
If employees need a little time to themselves, they can brush up on their literary game in the office library, which is paneled with Douglas fir. Facebook truly knows the only way to work.
