Where would you like your office?
Some seriously cool places to work.
McLaren Technology Centre - Surrey UK
The staggeringly sleek McLaren Technology Centre is an office and factory in Surrey for the Formula One racing-car company. An artificial lake helps to cool the building and its beating heart - a 475-foot-long wind tunnel used to test Formula One cars.

Googleplex - California USA
Googles work ethos sets it apart from other employers. Free meals, a swimming spa, and free doctors onsite. Google engineers can spend
20% of time on independent projects. No wonder the Googleplex gets 1,300
resumés each day!
Gadgets and gizmos dominate the deskspace

Red Bull - London UK
Featuring slides and table tennis you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a nursery rather than a London office. The Soho based London HQ of Red Bull wins in the coolness stakes though.
