TripAdvisor employees go on holiday every time they report to work at their 16,000 sq-ft office at the PricewatershouseCoopers building at Cross Street in Singapore

Driving the interior design concept for the Singapore office of TripAdvisor, the world’s largest online travel website, was “the world is one big playground”. Designed by local commercial interior design company Kyoob-id, the interior design and build project for TripAdvisor comprised the general work area, seven meeting rooms, pantry, and resources rooms.

Both design conceptualisation and building of this Asia-Pacific regional office was completed in just six months. According to Kyoob-id associate director, Maggie Yeo, it was the connectivity of TripAdvisor’s raison d’etre, with its sites in 30 countries and in 21 languages, that drove the inspiration behind the interior concept for the dynamic, global firm.

“The world is one big playground,” says Yeo. “We wanted to emulate a fun environment akin to a travel experience in the office, given the travel and leisure scope of TripAdvisor’s business and industry.”

In the interior design, an eclectic blend of materials, furnishing, and colours – light oak and accents of bright hues – are utilised to signify diverse travel experiences; with ample open space, exposed ceilings, movement and natural light aiming to inspire creativity and dynamic thinking among staff.
