How cool is your office?

The answer is possibly not as cool as these. Office Snapshots is a website dedicated to the beautiful working spaces occupied by companies around the world. It's the artfully curated brainchild of Stephen Searer and it has become one of the best sources of inspiration and ideas for offices everywhere.

While there's lots of evidence to suggest a well-thought out working environment can greatly improve employee morale and productivity, not every company has the budget to install huge ball pools or games rooms. However, small improvements can be made very affordably if you did want to make some changes around your office. Feel free to use our pick of the best workspaces on Office Snapshots to inspire you.

Be sure to check out Office Snapshots for many more great workspaces.

Shutterstock, NYC

Found in the Empire State Building itself, the stock photo and image company Shutterstock has made their workspace a place their employees don't just associate with work thanks to its yoga studio, a library and lots of visual stimulation on the walls. Not to mention there are lots of games to play!

JWT Agency, Paris

The unusual design of JWT Agency's Parisian headquarters feels like it was inspired by caves for those meeting rooms and an English garden for the grass-like carpets. Somehow it works!
