Everything from an AFL football field to a gay pride bathroom, Australia’s new Airbnb headquarters has it all… and then some. Opened in early 2016 in Sydney, the new space is home to the company’s rapidly growing Australian market. Each room was conceived by local designers The Bold Collective, and has been transformed into Airbnb listings to represent places around the world. A Hollywood diner. Mardi Gras shower rooms (with a massive flamingo in one, a giant pride flag in the other). A Kangaroo Valley lounge. A Havana dining room. And more.
Here are some select images of Airbnb’s awesome new Aussie abode:
Light, bright: Each room reflects listings around the world.
Rainbow Pride: This LGBT bathroom paints a garish, albeit colorful, picture.
Gentlemen only: This bathroom was designed as a men’s club / whiskey lounge.
No startup or tech company is complete without some sort of gaming element to release stress.
So much for transparency: This clever bookcase hides an office.
Wood you? Dark and light wood tones elevate this dining space / conference room.
Play ball: Airbnb’s new digs are a nod to Australia’s AFL fandom.
Private working spaces are key to any tech office. This one feels like a capsule hotel room. We love it.
