Forward-thinking workspaces are continuing to gain popularity around the world and Google’s office in Toronto is definitely on the cutting-edge of this revolution.

The Toronto office opened 11 years ago and only had a handful of employees. Now, the office has over 400 ‘Googlers’ that work in a space that is by far one of the most fun, yet obscure spaces in the city. Spread over five floors, the office features themed spaces including several music rooms for listening to your favorite tunes, a plethora of game rooms for challenging co-workers and many areas where you can reset your creativity by doing a little exercise.

Not only does the Google office foster social interaction but it’s also furnished with recycled goods including car headlights and reclaimed wood beams. Moreover, the office is powered by 100% renewable energy to make all work and play sustainable
