Social networking giant Facebook leased a 22,000 sq. ft office in Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai‘s prime commercial business district for its India corporate office. Located on the 7th floor of the One BKC Building, a commercial tower controlled by Radius developers.
There’s a mandatory FB wall at the entry and the look is that of an unfinished warehouse as a part of the larger perpetually-work-in-progress theme FB uses for all its offices around the world. “When we build our offices globally, we bring in the whole feel, the unfinished look which shows our unfinished journey. In Mumbai office, we brought a local artist who has really brought the office to life. These beautiful murals represent Mumbai’s life,” said Shweta Shukla, Head of HR of Facebook (India and SEA).
Moreover, the Instabooth is a cute addition to the whole decor of Facebook’s Mumbai office. The company brought in a local artist for all the murals that can be seen inside the office. The whole office boasts of an open area seating, with standing desks in plenty. The idea is to break the barriers that closed cabins come with and encourage creativity and productivity with informal seating.
The FB office also offers the employees a gym allowance to promote a healthy lifestyle and also funds clubs if people are interested in a certain activity, such as reading or football. Additionally, the office cafe will not only whip up local Indian dishes but also healthy fare.
The Facebook Mumbai workplace has a modern and funky architecture, with decals on the walls and hanging boards with Hindi words. The office also doesn’t have any cubicle systems and is instead an open office culture, with a lot of standing desks and natural light seeping in from everywhere.
The most interesting part of the FB cool workspace is the unique names they’ve come up for their meeting rooms. All of the names have a distinct Mumbai flavour, be it Nariman Pint, Vada Pav, Pina Colaba, Malad Whisky or Dabawallah.
