Looking somewhat similar to the PAN offices – just a little larger! – the brand new HQ of photo agency Shutterstock is completed, the decorators are out and the staff are in. The office theme, in collaboration with Studios Architecture, is billed as “New York loft casual” and the location – the Empire State Building, New York.
Enjoy a walk around through the photos below.

The new HQ facts:
• Approximately 300 employees currently work out of Shutterstock’s global
• The space consists of 85,000 square feet over 2 floors (including 10,000
square feet of outdoor space).
• The cost of the renovation was approximately $10 million.
• We analszed 50,000 hours of meeting time over 7 months to determine the right size and number of conference rooms. 61% of meetings had 4 or fewer people. While not surprising given our agile company culture, this stat emphasised the need for lots of small breakout rooms and just a few large conference rooms.
• Employees voted on everything from meeting room names to game room themes (and then designed them).
• Real-time data screens display social and site analytics throughout the office
• “Wormholes” provide live feeds into domestic and international locations, and “robots” can frequently be found around the office.
To celebrate the convergence of art and technology at the new HQ view a preview of the Art + Tech Spring galleries from the Shutterstock and Offset collections.
