Hello Kitty – a well-known character of Japanese pop culture, a little white kitten. She came up with employees of the company Sanrio in 1974. Brand Hello Kitty was incorporated in 1976 and is now used as a brand for many products. We offer a look at the restaurant, amusement park, hotel and even a maternity hospital of the brand. According to information provided by management, the restaurant is so popular that often reserves a place in it for several weeks. There is even a hospital, decorated in the style of Hello Kitty.
This unusual building was designed to look like an ocean liner and was once the headquarters of Coca Cola’s bottling operations. Helping the building look like a ship are various design add-ons such as portholes, cargo doors, and a large bridge on top. To construct the building, four other buildings on the site had to be remodeled to fit in with the ship plans. The huge edifice was built in 1937 and designed by architect Robert V. Derrah; today, it still stands as one of L.A.’s most famous buildings. Architect Derrah created this manufactory for Coca-Cola right around the same time he designed Crossroads of the World, also ship-shaped, on Sunset. For this landmark Coke plant, Derrah built the project around a handful of existing buildings, including the company’s 1927 plant, so I reckon it’s more of a re-design. Streamline Moderne in design, it’s got all the boat things, with portholes, catwalk, promenade deck, hatches, rivets, and the confounded bridge.
The new Facebook office is centred around employees needs and wants. Several small ‚Äòneighbourhoods‚Äô were created to give each department its own unique style. Employees are encouraged to write on walls, add artwork, and move furniture as they see fit.Regardless, the space has a wonderful view, and has the beginnings of some neat design. The wall coloring and the furniture give the impression that the space will be given a similar, though most likely smaller, makeover as some of the elements are similar.
The company has remained committed to providing free gourmet meals, snacks, and drinks in micro-kitchens located throughout the building. In order to keep the company agile and fresh, employees are encouraged to write on walls, add artwork, and move furniture as they see fit. Äôd move furniture into Mark Zuckerberg‚Äôs offices and then challenge him to a game of ping-pong or basketball on the company tables and court.
In the past, we‚Äôve posted several times about Facebook‚Äôs office space, but nothing quite like today‚Äôs post. Facebook recently moved their offices out of several smaller locations spread throughout Palo Alto, CA and into one central, 150,000-square-foot building that used to house Agilent Technologies. Many of the building‚Äôs original features either remain or have been repurposed for Facebook‚Äôs use.
Employees collaborated with designers throughout the entire process to ensure the best product possible. Because of the differing departmental needs, small neighborhoods within the building were created giving each department its own unique flavor and vibe.
