A Tour of Gjirafa’s New Cool Office
Gjirafa, the Albanian search engine that uses natural language processing to make the Albanian web accessible to all users, recently opened a new office in Pristina, Kosovo.
“The working-day begins at the personal bar of Gjirafa, which is made of organic wood and continues to the relaxing space after the release of the final product. The organization of the work and space starts from the waiting area, the meeting room and the working part. The bean bags, the brain-storming zone, the mini-library, are working areas without stress. A unique element which besides the usage, the function and the relax is also the most highlighted part of the facility. The orange-metallic shipping-container, as a recycling material, integrated on the interior, comes as an out of the blueobject which intrigues the curiosity for its whereabouts. The inner space is used as a meeting-room while upon the container there is a hammock to rest and relax. T he inner function, the work coordination regarding the chosen design, makes the environment more comfortable for the team and their socialization. As you stand up from your working desk, you go through a bunch of bean bags placed in front of the TV, to read a book in the library, to relax on the rocking chairs as well as take a nap on the hammock; nevertheless, this would increase the socialization of the workers.”, says MADEN Group
