Google Pittsburgh Office Provides Workers with a Net-Like Resting Area

When designing an ideal workspace, the notion of including a hammock probably ranks high as a desired feature, and that’s exactly what Strada has provided for the Google Pittsburgh office. But Strada wasn’t satisfied with giving the search engine mega company any run-of-the-mill hammock, theirs hangs from the second floor and is large enough to hold entire departments. Those worried about the hammock breaking will be happy to know there’s a net underneath to protect workers from falling. Not a shabby place to do all of your computer programming for the day.

Aside from the giant hammock, the Google Pittsburgh office also features steampunk and antique-looking aesthetics to preserve the history of the building the workspace is located in. Primary-colored furnishings, a mainstay of Google offices, are also to be expected.
