TripAdvisor sought to create a cutting edge new world headquarters that would attract and retain the best and brightest talent.

Bringing TripAdvisor’s World Headquarters Vision to Life

TripAdvisor is the largest travel web site company in the world with over 60 million members and over 170 million reviews of hotels and other travel-related businesses. They chose officeworks to be part of the team when planning the move to their dramatic new 282,000 square feet world headquarters at 400 First Avenue in Needham.

TripAdvisor wanted their new home to be a comfortable workspace that could support ever-changing technology while delivering a strong sense of community that reflects their business of helping people find transportation options around the world.  This new home for more than 1,000 employees, boasts a 3,000 square feet fitness center with a 4-story atrium, 1,100 stations, 140 offices, and 150,000 square feet of expansion space.

The modern industrial loft inspired space incorporates leading edge technologies throughout, supporting connections with collaborators and customers around the world. Officeworks designed, specified, delivered and installed all furniture and continues to support their furniture needs globally today. Featured elements included Teknion District with Compliments height-adjustable tables, Sit On It Torsa Task chairs, Source Office guest chairs and pieces from over 50 different manufacturers.

A Customized Customer Experience

Baker wanted a work bench workstation and requested an industrial looking rivet on the inside of the workstation.  Through the mock ups, we decided that they would work better and have a better look on the outside wood laminate fascias. We worked with Teknion on getting the locations drilled in the warehouse and worked with a local vendor to purchase the rivets and had the installers install per plan in the field for the final look.

Fun Facts:
  • 75+ manufacturers we sourced products to execute Trip Advisor's vision.
  • 282,000 sq. ft with 140 offices and 1,100 workstations
