Google Office Headquarters around the world are best known for their outstanding and often quirky office features.
From slides to massage chairs and aquarium relaxation rooms, Google's office spaces are definitely some of the most coveted workplaces from around the world.
But the new revamp of Google's Amsterdam offices made ustwice as interested when we realised that they have a retro caravan, just for office meetings.
Are the CaravanTimes team jealous did you ask?
Why, of course we are.
The renovations were completed in January and Google's revamped Amsterdam office now includes a quirky mix of Dutch elements and garage-inspired flair.
The garage inspiration stems from the garage where Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google.
The exposed brick, graffiti and cardboard boxes are all representative elements of that era.
Let's skip to the good bit
And the main attraction?
A 1960s caravan, sitting in the middle of the office, complete with cushions and vintage furniture, it is said to serve as an unconventional but comfortable room.
Is there any other better way to hold office meetings?
The Dutch-inspired office also includes a desk that resembles a courier bicycle, Dutch waffle ceiling panels and a gingerbread wall.
But the quirky Google office perks don't stop there.
The Google office in Tel Aviv, Israel will blow your mind.
Apart from having a slide, as most other Google offices do, the Tel Aviv office also has a fireman's pole providing employees with a fun way to get from one floor to the next.
Important conference meetings are held in egg-shaped conference rooms located all over the office.
Also, one of our favourite features of the office has to be the relaxation rooms, which are dimly lit, including bathtubs filled with foam for employees to relax in, but wait for it...are located in front of built-in fish tanks.
Have you ever heard of anything more absurd?
Another amazing Google office feature is the Youtube office slide - a large, wiggly, three lane slide, which is undoubtedly the best Google office slide in the world right now.
But for all that excitement, we'd still rather have the Amsterdam caravan meeting room in our office.
