Take a tour around Instagram's brand new NYC headquarters

Instagram's visually stunning new abode boasts a gelato station, a fully stocked bar and plenty more 'grammable' features. We wouldn't expect anything less from the world's number one photo sharing app!

Walking into the Insta's new office on the 14th floor of the Lower Manhattan building is like stepping into to a living, breathing Instagram feed. On arrival, visitors are greeted by a massive digital wall displaying a curated collection of photos generated by users. As with many of the tech-ready workspaces we place our clients in, Insta's HQ is aesthetically appealing and comes with a whole array of perks and extras. However, it's also a space where innovation and creation happens, so it's also set up for productivity and hard graft.

When Instagram moved to its first NYC office back in 2015, it had just three employees. Now, 290 people occupy the new workspace, and with room to grow, the company is looking to add another 60 by the end of the year!

We'd love to show you around the space in person, but in this instance a virtual tour will have to suffice!

Digital Reception Wall

As soon as you step out of the elevator on the 14th floor, the visual feast begins. Photos and videos from some of the app's 800 million users around the world are displayed on the digital wall.

The Dome

This iridescent prismic space is inspired by the "Dichroic Geometry Concept" - a two-coloured glass NASA invented in the '50s. Safe to say, no filters needed!

The Atrium

Fit for speakers, social events and business gatherings, the atrium will feature a rotating photography exhibition for occupiers and visitors to enjoy.

The Living Wall

Any tech company with a conscience should be doing what they can to help the environment, and although this floor to ceiling wall garden won't make a huge impact, it does act as a great backdrop for photos!

Meeting in Style

All the millennial-ready meeting rooms have NYC-centric names like Blair Waldorf (a character from Gossip Girl) and Dollar Hotdog!

The Library

Employees can take a break from all the visual stimulation in the quiet mid-century library - the perfect space in which to read and relax.
