Let's be honest, we can't be the only ones who imagined Pinterest's offices would look like a workshop of crafty, delicious, DIY wonder. (You know, the kind of place where yarn grows on trees and the aroma of freshly-baked goodness fills the air.) But a peek at the photo-sharing sites' new San Francisco headquarters over at design site Dezeen isn't exactly what we had in mind.
The letdown, brought to us by New York designers All of the Above and Los Angeles studio First Office, is made up of four white "cuboids" stretching from the floor to the roof of a former industrial space. The offices, which are connected by a steel mezzanine level and which take up the massive (45,000-square-foot) warehouse, also includes transparent meeting rooms (oddly) and an open dining space.
Among the space's more creative elements, the architects added a second-floor canteen, flexible desk arrangements and white and glass surfaces that can be used as white boards, pinboards and graffiti walls where employees can share ideas.
Take a look at the offices below and head over to Dezeen for more details.
