One Airbnb 2015 was a global company gathering for 1500 employees held at Pier 48 in San Francisco, California. The design transformed the vacant pier into a landscape of abstract white on white facades behind which colorful interiors celebrated each city in which Airbnb has a regional office. The space hosted a series of breakout sessions, main stage talks, evening cocktails and a family dinner. The event was designed by Airbnb Environments and produced in collaboration with B Line Events.
The Airbnb Dublin office was completed May 2016. The office for 400 people is located in a former bicycle factory on the Hanover Quay in Dublin, Ireland. Airbnb Environments works with local architects in each office market to tap into the design culture of a city. This is the fourth project completed in partnership with Heneghan Peng Architects.
