A Peek Inside Stack Exchange’s Hip London Office
Stack Exchange is a network of community-driven websites that covers diverse topics from programming to cooking to photography and gaming. It also operates Stack Overflow, a forum where professional programmers give away help for free. The company has offices across the U.S and Europe in cities such as: New York, Denver, Berlin and London.
“To enable natural communication throughout the office, we created a bright, contemporary open plan front of house reception and waiting area with coffee bar. This area also serves as an informal meeting area for staff looking to work away from their desks. A large tea point was created with cafeteria-style seating, folding tables and an AV booth, allowing for multiple usages and configurations. Not only could staff use this at lunchtime or working away from their desk, they could also hold seminars and informal events here too. To encourage further staff interactions, we created a games room within the office so staff can take a break, for a fresh state of mind”, said Peldon Rose
