Rapt Studio has designed the new headquarters of virtual storage company Dropbox, located in San Francisco, California. The new offices are designed to be as unobstructed as possible. Similar to their service, the space needed to be nearly invisible and capable enough to support collaboration among the company’s many teams. The solution: a bustling city layout based on landmarks, neighborhoods, and shared community values. Distinctive neighborhoods flanked by portals and meeting rooms to align with the needs of different departments. Groups of 40 to 50 people could create their own company subcultures based on their collective personalities, from quiet and industrious engineers to more social, vocal marketers. Other features include a library inspired by a 1970s Italian theater, war rooms and a Karaoke Bar.
