For a Virtual-First Team, Dropbox Dublin Serves as a Collaborative Hub
Reflecting Dropbox’s shift to a “virtual first” culture, there are no individual workstations at its Dublin outpost designed by IA Interior Architects. Rather, the entire 18,000 square feet are devoted to collaboration—team-based activities, meetings, and socializing. All furniture is mobile and the space is, too, courtesy of reconfigurable zones such as training rooms that can be sized using movable partitions, a café with adjacent all-hands area that can be separated (or connected) by way of sliding glass panels, and a lounge area divisible by acoustic drapes. IA’s neutral color and materials palette brings a biophilic touch: Note the organically shaped brass-clad reception desk, ash-veneered millwork, and a hall’s meandering line of LEDs that doubles as wayfinding, creating a sense of discovery.
