AOL's New Cooler-Than-Thou Palo Alto's Offices: Figure 1

When you see the offices of a tech monster like Google, the place looks so fun that it is hard to imagine how any work ever gets done.

In this week’s departure from the DC residential real estate scene, we take a look at another tech behemoth’s fun-looking workplace as Fast Company’s CoDesign site has profiled AOL’s new offices in Palo Alto.

Despite the general feeling that AOL has become increasingly irrelevant over the past several years, the new northern California office looks pretty fun. The company tapped Studio O+A, a design firm that has conceived the digs for a number of hip tech companies out there (Yelp, Facebook, etc), to design the office. It has the requisite pool and ping pong tables and funky tree-house-like work spaces that are staples in any tech company headquarters these days. We don’t see anyone cruising around on a Razor scooter, but that would be very AOL circa-2000 anyway.

A couple more photos of the office below.
