Well, it’s not yet too late to refurbish your office space. Dive in on this list of the most beautiful office spaces in the world for inspiration.
Lego (Billund, Denmark)
Seeing Lego toys often takes you back down memory lane to your childhood days. Their office in Denmark will relive those memories in the flesh. Its whimsical interior will make you feel like a child again. With bright colored spaces and an indoor slide for those who don’t feel like taking the stairs, Lego employees are surely in for a treat.

Co Op Kyosai Plaza (Tokyo, Japan)
Leave it to Japan to make something beautiful out of a tragedy. After a destructive earthquake rocked the country in 2011, electricity was in short supply. Proper ventilation became a problem. But the Japanese Consumers Cooperative Union stepped up to the challenge.
It redesigned its office space to be more energy-efficient while inspiring productivity. The walls are lined with greeneries and hanging plant curtains that you won’t even think you’re in the middle of a metropolis.
Selgas Cano Architecture Office (Madrid, Spain)
Doing office works in the middle of the woods might sound like a crazy dream. But the Selgas Cano Architecture Office, one of the most beautiful office spaces in the world, begs to disagree. Their office is in a wooded area just outside of Madrid. Half the roof and part of the wall are transparent so employees can see the forest outside in all its glory. Apart from making the office look chic, the half-glass wall is a clever way to take advantage of natural light too.

Inventionland (Pennsylvania, USA)
True to its name, the Inventionland office in Pittsburgh is creativity incarnate. If we’re honest, it’s designed to look more like an aquatic fantasy theme park than an office.

Talk about a childhood dream come true.
