Designing the new Pingdom office (pics)
We’re about to enter a new phase in Pingdom’s history. Over the next few months, we’ll be hiring even more people, and our current office is starting to feel a bit small.
That’s why we’ll soon be upgrading to “Pingdom Office 2.0.” We’ve already picked the office space, signed the lease, and the plan is to move in at the beginning of 2012. Before we move in, the whole office will have been rebuilt and custom designed for us, and will rival some of the coolest offices out there. We’re aiming for awesomeness.
The interior design agency Charlie’s Interior Design Angels (roughly translated from Swedish) is currently in the process of designing the new office and will oversee the whole thing for us. They’re doing a great job. We’re on the same wavelength, so this bodes very well.
Everything is still at a very early stage, but we’d like to share some of the early design sketches they have shown us.
Update 110705: We’re currently looking into color schemes with our design agency. Here are a couple of the colored sketches they’ve sent us.
Needless to say, we’re pretty excited about this whole thing. We’ll keep you posted as it develops.
(The notes on the drawings are in Swedish, in case you’re wondering.)
