Located in New Delhi, India, social networking firm hike’s new office exudes a youthful vibe that appropriately echoes the spirit of the company
Conceptualised as a “Temple of Excellence" by the founder/CEO Kavin Bharti Mittal, who set the vision and personally led a small cross-functional team of designers and engineers, the new headquarters consists of six spaces: service areas, open work spaces, green parks, spaces of solitude , collaborative spaces and recreational spaces, and ends with flexibility, productivity and creativity.
Spaces for collaboration can be found in nooks and corners, giving way to productivity and idea generation.
Private spaces, such as wall pods, can be found all around the office to reflect the more people-centric aspects of the company.
Green spaces allow employees to be with nature, creating a stress free environment. In line with the overall vision of the CEO, these green parks intensify the non-office-like environment, into a more campus-like atmosphere that fosters imagination and creativity.
The recreational spaces include a 70's-cafe-themed cafeteria, a gymnasium and showers, meditation room and a nap room.
