5 Nigerian companies with the coolest office spaces in 2015

Nigerian offices are notoriously monotonous and stifling. I mean, perks like staff buses and “thirteenth month” bonuses are great but, how about we did away with the boring fluorescent bulbs and claustrophobic cubicles in our offices?

Office spaces should reflect a company’s culture because environment plays a big role in productivity and creativity. This is one of the coolest things Silicon Valley companies have got going for them. Thankfully, a couple of Lagos – “Yabacon Valley” or “Silicon Lagoon”, if you would – startups have begun to take a leaf from their Silicon Valley counterparts. We’ve toured our share of them so far this year. Here are the ones that stood out most in our minds.

The Andela Amity campus is a great place to cool off and also get serious with work.

There’s the awe inspiring graffiti …

This building is home to a number of AIG-backed startups including hotels booking platform Jovago.com, online marketplace Kaymu.com.ng and food delivery service Hellofood.com.ng.

Kaymu did the coolest thing by  inscribing staff members’ names on the walls

The Co-creation Hub

Old but goody, Co-creation hub gave most of us the first taste of what cool working space should look like. We enjoyed dart, table tennis, Play Station among other cool stuff.
