We enter the land of ride-sharing startup Lyft on this week’s episode of Cribs. Lyft’s San Francisco headquarters are a bit like entering Willy Wonka’s factory – if it were painted head-to-toe in hot pink. Large mop-like displays in Lyft’s signature hue greet visitors to the 66,000 square-foot space on the edge of San Francisco’s Mission district. Fuzzy pillows, mustaches, hot pink walls and pop-culture characters run chockablock throughout each floor.
Lyft’s warehouse office was once the domain of the University of California, San Francisco. The ride-sharing service took over a few years back and brought in Rapt Studios to add a truly unique touch to every inch of the office – including elevators that look as though Cookie Monster’s pink cousin exploded inside.
Lyft’s funky and imaginative space strives to connect the creative branding with a growing population of workers. Employees have room to meet up and exchange ideas in open areas and in specially made enclosures, too.
Check out the secret room (full of mustachioed men) and other fun work perks in the video above for an inside look to this unique startup space.
