Image sharing app owned by Facebook, Instagram now has a new office in New York.
For the design of the newly minted, tech-infused work base, the social media platform utilized architecture firm Gehry Partners. Alongside Kitty Bromhead the NYC culture lead, the in-house design team worked together to provide detailed cues for the direction of the large project. New York’s natural aesthetic served as a source of design inspiration.
Key highlights of the space include the Digital Greeting Wall and the Dome, both part of the company’s entrance area. The wall features curated Stories and feed content captured by global users of the platform. While the Dome, a partial shape with overhead lighting and moveable seating offers an interactive user experience for visitors. The numerous meeting rooms and mini-kitchen areas throughout the designed space provide countless options for the creative staffers.
The new company’s office is spectacular for many reasons but unique for one reason – the office interiors are styled after the app.

The new office is not set to the usual feel like the California office, which was set to keep you in the app even in real life. We can say the California office is “all about Instagram!” but that of New York is strictly for serious business.
