If we had to describe Twitter's New York headquarters in a 140 character tweet, it would go something like this: A speakeasy, latte art, trap doors, and rosé on tap? Yep, Twitter New York is officially cool enough to deserve landmark status #NotFakeNews
Twitter has more than 30 offices around the world, and each is designed to reflect the history and feel of its surrounding environment. In Sydney, the space's light, colourful textures mirror the warm climate and beaches outside. In Singapore, the office features a replication of the city's colourful shophouse windows. And in New York, industrial elements hearken back to the building's beginning.
Located in Chelsea, the Twitter office occupies two renovated pre-war warehouse-style buildings, one of which was originally a wagon house for a department store. The buildings have since been connected to create a cohesive space where you can barely walk more than two feet without coming across a hashtag.
