Prepare to be riddled with envy. Facebook just moved to a new office in Singapore, its Asia-Pacific headquarters, and it's the work-space of which dreams are made.
Located on the 22nd floor of Singapore's South Beach Tower, lofty corridors with unfinished ceilings, open working stations featuring flexible desks and intimate seating spaces make up the huge four-story office.
While Facebook doesn't disclose its employee numbers per country, the new Singapore digs have plenty of empty desks and the company is looking to fill over 40 positions, according to the website.
A quick tour of the office reveals just how seriously the company takes employees' work-life balance, with spaces designed to provide visual and physical stimulation. Work anniversaries, or Face-versaries, are celebrated with a giant balloon depicting the number of years worked attached to desks.
Click on for a peek into one of the world's most creative offices.
Visitors entering the two-month-old office get a view of an airy pantry and kitchen stocked with juice, fruit, granola, sandwiches and nuts.
The company plans to install a full cafeteria next year that will be named Hawker Square, a reference to Singapore's local cuisine as well as the Hacker Square cultural center in the company's California headquarters.
For those needing a stronger pick-me-up, the office has a vast wine collection and even beer on tap.
There's an interactive map illustrating the scale of Facebook's global population across its platforms. The site itself boasts 1.5 billion users, alongside 400 million Instagram users and 900 million Whatsapp users.
There's a massive wall for visitors to scribble on, a staple of Facebook offices around the world.
It's common for newbies to put on weight in their first month at Facebook because of the array of free food, according to one employee. But there's a treadmill room with a view of Singapore's skyline for those keen to work it off.
Inspiring slogans are pasted around the walls, such as "Kick the sh*t out of Option B," a line CFO Sheryl Sandberg penned following the death of her husband earlier this year. It refers to embracing your next best alternative when your desired option is no longer available.
The office pays homage to its host country through interior design.
Chinese push-carts reminiscent of traditional dim-sum sellers offer sweet treats while walls feature the work of Singaporean artists, including one mural representing a blend of Eastern and Western cultures by Justin Lee. A separate wall features rotating Instagram prints by local artists.
A winding staircase connecting all four floors is plastered with pink confetti stripes.
The new location is designed to maximize efficiency and fun. There's a vending machine of office supplies such as keyboards and memory cards that employees can access anytime.
One floor has a section with board games, including a Facebook-customized mahjong set.
And then there's the anti-gravity playroom, where furniture is attached to the wall just to make for fun photos.
