eBay Keeps Up with the Tech Boom in a Sociable, Remodeled Office
Originally published on CaliforniaHomeDesign.com
Founded in 1995, eBay is one of the notable success stories of the dot-com boom. Where else can you buy stylish Louboutins, part of the Berlin Wall or a grilled cheese sandwich shaped like the Virgin Mary all in the same place? eBay Inc. has been focusing on revamping its offices to create a more stylish work environment. Tom Edwards, senior manager of Global Design and Construction, who helped lead the design team, says that eBay literally took down the cubical walls, providing for a more productive, eco-friendly atmosphere.
Moving away from traditional walls by using glass and high panels also allows for more natural light throughout the space. This boosts the company’s energy savings and creates a more cost-effective environment. All of the lights in the office have motion sensors, shutting off if no one is using that specific area.
