A Tour of TripAdvisor’s New Beautiful Headquarters

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel website that provides user reviews, photos and travel advice of hotels around the world. Recently, Baker Design Group was selected to design their new 282,000 sq. ft world headquarters in Needham, Massachusetts, to support their fast moving high tech corporate culture.

“At the center of the headquarters the “heart of the house” for the TripAdvisor Community is called the TA Forum. This is a multi-story space that is a constant buzz of open and private meeting spaces, collaborative teams working, and socializing for the building. The space is designed to transform in an instant into a large community theater and meeting room, like a Town Hall for their community of 1500 employees. The TA Forum has the capability of hosting a wide variety of events, and includes a giant central display to exhibit a wide range of live data from their customers, or support presentations during company meetings. All events have the capacity to be streamed online to their Global Offices and Customers worldwide”, said Baker Design Group…“Two years ago, a new headquarters was just a vision, but through Stephen Baker’s creativity and teamwork something magical resulted.” said Julie Bradley, CFO of TripAdvisor. “TripAdvisor has solidified its culture.  We now have the opportunity to collaborate across teams in a space that expresses the cultural nuances and global connection that TripAdvisor stands for.”
