Inside Airbnb

A peek at the offices of the company leading the rise of the share economy

Airbnb, the wildly popular home-rental web company, has made its new dwelling in a hundred-year-old warehouse. The Airbnb headquarters was built on the same premise as the company—that there is potential in unused, previously overlooked space. Filled with open, comfortable workspaces that inspire a spirit of travel and a sense of home, the new headquarters is a living example of what the company strives for in its daily work.

The Ate Ate Ate cafeteria (a play on the address of the headquarters, 888 Brannan Street), is a popular place for employees to snack and work at the same time.
