San Francisco’s rapidly growing messaging platform for workplaces, Slack, opens its Dublin office this week and it looks incredible!
Having grown to 4 million daily active users, Slack needs more space to hire new employees, launch new departments and work globally. So, they have expanded to new offices in various cities, including San Francisco, Vancouver, Melbourne, London, Toronto, New York and now Dublin.
Located in One Park Place, Hatch Street, the office is designed by local ODOS Architects. The new office will accommodate Slack’s European customer experience, sales and business operations teams. The company currently employs 50 people in Dublin.
The introduction wall looks welcoming and fancy, marked with the hashtag #slackdublin.
Founder and Chief-Executive, Stewart Butterfield said to the Irish Independent,
Dublin is ahead, when comparing it to other major European cities. It’s part of Europe, has a good ecosystem and has good people to hire. And when we hire them, they often have connections to people we can steal.
The wonderful harmony of wood and plants covers the whole area in style.
The small transparent cubicles are for the gatherings and company meetings.
We see nature inspired by plants and greenery…
…and it looks very nice.
David O’Shea, the Architect says,
Unlike major cities throughout the world, Dublin’s format is not based on grids and blocks. Its streets meander and flow through the city, creating unique meeting points and venues, and for some reason it works really well.
David O’Shea said that they replicated the feel with curves throughout the office – including curvy walkways.
He also mentioned that they used a lot of plants to help bring in the outside more stronger.
The bar is fancy with the neon-fixtured quotes…
The the logo blanket looks ‘corporately cozy’.
Overall, the place looks very modern, fresh and beautiful. Plus, Slack is aiming to employ 180 people in their Dublin HQ by the end of the year.
