New GT Offices Just Like Home!



The Miami Herald takes a look at GT's new office space, which is designed to be comfortable and just like home, if your home is a huge office building downtown:
“What this space does is embody the old adage of home away from home. Think about it. At home today, no one goes to a ‘home office’ to sit and work on a computer. They have wireless. They sit in the most comfortable space they can find."
Hmm, I like this concept, but fellas please -- no emailing from the bathroom, ok?
“Again, the desired effect is similar to home, in that you want to feel like you’re mobile.”

Indeed, everything at Greenberg is mobile. Even the walls slide on tracks.
Exactly!

My home is so mobile, not only my walls slide on tracks, my whole home slides on tracks.

(In fact, I actually live in a dilapidated trailer park right next to the railroad tracks, so what I'm understanding is GT's new space is pretty much a giant, moveable, wall-sliding mobile home/portable wifi station attached to its own Starbucks/sports bar.)

That does sound warm and comfy!

  2. Transparency? Smoked glass walls for every office? Can't even pick their noses in privacy any more

    nobody's going to see you pick your nose behind smoked glass. unfortunately, they will be able to see you if you do your secretary on your desk.

  5. Is that picture for real?!

    As a mom, about the only time I get any peace is in the bathroom. Ah well.

    PS I am not currently in the bathroom writing this comment.

    And promptly fall asleep with the TV on.
