Austrian architects Innocad won a competition to design the three-storey offices, which feature themed meeting rooms including a hunting lodge and ocean.
An x-ray image of a computer covers the rear wall of the reception, there's artificial grass in one of the coffee lounges and of course there are games rooms.
Photography is by Paul Ott.
Here's some more information from Innocad:
