Insane and strange offices around the world are no secret, but are you aware of the loads of weird and wonderful places to work in right in our own backyard? Loads of countries across Canada are embracing the oh so bizarre designed workplaces that will make you feel not only jealous of how it looks, but will also want to make you work there! Here is Team Adzuna‘s short list of the coolest offices in Canada.
Production collective company Mile Inn, recently started occupying an impressive redesigned townhouse in the heart of downtown Toronto. This townhouse is made up of “specialized production boutiques such as Morrison (commercials and photography), Apollo Studios (music and audio post-production), Popp Rok (branded content and music videos) and 1One Productions (experiential activations and virtual reality).”
This space was destined to feel like a boutique hotel and was also created to attract the creative workforce as well as agencies and production companies in Canada. Every room has a significant design, embracing ‘an eclectic but welcoming vibe.”
Metric System’s office in Toronto, home to the advertising and digital company, is decked out with three vintage airstream trailers. Besides providing a unique work environment, the full-sized, restored trailers each serve as the president’s office, a recording studio, and a café.
Upperkut’s quirky motto is Amaze. Convince. Mobilize. Their office has certainly amazed and convinced us that it is a wonderful place to work. Their zany Montreal office is situated at the bottom of a fully operational church. The relatively small space has been transformed by painting Upperkut’s own brightly coloured graphics across the walls: this to brighten the once original dark wood interior. Cool eh?

Coca-Cola Canada having moved its suburban offices in the heart of downtown somewhat years ago, still has its forever charm. This 100,000 square foot office is split up into four strategic zones; “Celebrate (social spaces), Engage (conferencing areas), Delight (experiential ‘brand’ spaces) and Centred (focused workspaces).” The main features of the office are brand themed corridors and the 3-story atrium that is the home to a comfy chilling-out area.

July 1st 2016, McCann celebrated their 101st anniversary in Canada and moved into their new home on Wellington Street West in the heart of downtown Toronto. “In our new space, we chose to support local up and coming artists”: this by means of unique installations such as a rotating gallery with new artists every 6 months. Installations include a custom wire art depiction of Harrison King which dons one of our main boardrooms, a wall showcasing 3D printed models or our employees, and a dog wall where we can share personal photos of our pets.”

Of course this list wouldn’t be complete with the incredibly amazing offices Google featuring somewhere, right? This Google workspace was created by the employees themselves for inspiration. Some awesome features include rooftop mini golf (as you can see below), a bike that powers a blender for smoothies, music rooms and games rooms, even including a pacman styled arcade room. Shall I need to convince you more of how great this sounds?

New York creative agency, Anomaly, opened its doors in 2012 in Toronto. To attract some of Canada’s top talent, the Anomaly office was designed to be both inspiring and fun. It’s an impressive place where people actually want to hang out. The office design is very versatile with highly creative and cool spots, to calm and quiet spots to relax.
