This hip San Francisco office found design inspiration in the cafes, dive bars and home offices in which the company's early employees did much of their work. The newly completed GitHub offices offer current employees endless choices when it comes to where and how they want to get to work that day.

A joint project between F+M and Studio Hatch, the new offices are spread out across 55,000-square-feet, a massive space that allowed the project to incorporate almost every kind of space a modern office could consider being. The GitHub San Francisco office features two bars, a library, a park, a museum, a "coder cave," and much more.

The innovative space is an example of how employers can stimulate and inspire employees by creating an nonrestrictive work environment that allows creativity to flourish.
