AIRBNB HQ

Threefold Architects working with Parkeray and the Airbnb environments team have just completed the new UK headquarters for Airbnb, located in a former warehouse in Clerkenwell, London to provide an office and events space for their London team. Airbnb are keen that each of their spaces around the world reflect the character and culture of the location. In response to this and in embracing the organisations “belong anywhere” ethos, Threefold conceived of a community of varied workspaces structured around the idea of a village.

The design distilled the key elements of the typical English settlement examining the individual spatial qualities and physical characteristics of each and expressing them in architectonic interventions throughout the space – The Farmhouse kitchen, The Village Green, The Pavilion, The Library, and The Market Square. Creating a truly agile workspace with no fixed desks, each of these elements provides a different kind of work environment for the team to inhabit throughout the day depending on time, mood, task, or whim.
