Los Angeles studio Bestor Architecture designed the Beats by Dre offices. The finished headquarters, which sprawl over 105,000-square feet, are bursting with color and energy. Considering the brand has just been acquired by Apple, for the bargain price of $3 billion dollars, this is the perfect time for a change!

The architects sought to creat an elegant environment for all 650 of the Beats' employees. Bestor founder Barbara explained, "We steered clear of the 'fun and games' aesthetic that has been recently spoofed on HBO –- the whole dot com deal. I think office environments, Silicon Valley or not, can often be quite generic or overly branded and we really wanted to make a campus that felt diverse spatially."

The open-plan design has been punctuated with atrium and skylights that encourage the flow of natural light, creating a space that is collaborative and warm. Stats for Vibrantly Elegant Headquarters Trending: Older & Mild
