While some startups work out of serviced offices, co-working spaces, incubators and accelerators, many have found places good enough to call “second home”.
As much as most people would renovate their houses to match their style and preference, many entrepreneurs would also dress up the office to reflect well on the company culture. That said, not all startups need to look like a page out of HOME & DESIGN magazine – there are many ways of going about it. You can be posh or gritty – but at the end of the day, it has to say something about the company.
Here is the non-exhaustive list of absolutely lovely startup offices in Asia. We have started with two offices in Korea, and will update as we go along!
Most memorable: The piano in the server room left us thinking… Who’s VCNC’s secret Beethoven serenading everyone else with the most melodious of tunes?
2. Malang Studio (Company behind lifestyle mobile apps like AlarmMon)
Address: 145-16, Samseong 1-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea
Most memorable: A shed with personal dormitories? The hammock? We can’t make up our minds…
Most memorable: That purple alien balloon standing erect? That looks like a potential punching bag
2. HotelQuickly (Company which built last-minute hotel booking app HotelQuickly)
Address: 139 Sethiwan Tower, 17th Fl., Pan Road, Silom, Bangrak, Bangkok
Most memorable: Doors for tables for sure! The whole office just reminded us of a fancy office-themed hotel ;)
