From Evanston to Istanbul: Unbelievable Offices Around the World

As many of you already know, Glantz Headquarters has moved to new premises in downtown Evanston. We can’t speak for the previous tenants (a corporate finance firm), but if we had to spend our 9-5 day working in a cookie-cutter office lit by fluorescent lights… we’d quickly lose our minds.
So we enlisted the help of our friend Jodi Morton, from 2to5design, to transform the once soulless space into an industrial-chic, creative environment.

Renovations included grinding the concrete floors, exposing brick walls, installing modern light fixtures and a complete re-furnishing.
The open layout of our workspace allows plenty of room to roll around in our wheely chairs, and nothing promotes creativity like our chalkboard wall—covered with inspirational quotes that remind us we actually like our jobs.

Creating a workspace that reflects your personality and interests makes a huge difference in how you work. It’s easy for Glantz designers to be productive and creative in a colorful, playful office.

Glantz Design isn’t the only company that believes in a fun working environment. Here are a few extravagant offices around the world that take “unconventional workspace” to the extreme.
