airbnb has again collaborated with architecture firm heneghan peng to complete its new international headquarters in dublin. titled ‘the warehouse’, the project marks the first occasion that airbnb has been able to pre-determine the architectural layout of an interior space. the 4,000 square meter headquarters houses over 400 employees, while the firm’s previous dublin office, also designed by heneghan peng, will continue to operate.
the existing structure had fallen into disrepair before airbnb teamed up with heneghan peng architects to completely renovate the property. announced as the brand’s first ‘urban campus’ model, the headquarters features new structural elements including a dramatic central staircase. in order to enhance employee visibility, the airbnb environments team incorporated a ‘neighborhood’ concept that allows staff to gather within in a single dedicated base.
the warehouse consists of 29 neighborhoods where individual desks have been replaced by one large communal table. these zones also include personal storage, one or two sit stands, and one lounge spot. the central staircase forms the office’s focal point. named the ‘agora’, it connects the first floor to the basement, unifying the various floors. the versatile stairway serves multiple purposes, from a conference and community event space for up to 400 people, to a lounge style working environment.
as with previous offices, the interior design of each meeting room is inspired by existing airbnb listings from around the world. as part of airbnb’s global office design strategy, the environments team engaged with local employees to help furnish the rooms. this included a custom-built replica of a dining table from a romanian listing, and authentic decor from a dwelling in montpellier, france.
