Twitch Combines Serious Productivity with Serious Fun in New Headquarters

Top gaming company combines productivity with fun in collaborative new office space

Twitch is the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, so it’s no surprise that interactivity and fun were key design mandates for the young team’s new San Francisco headquarters. In addition to being achieving a relaxed, low key environment, design firm Rapt Studio were tasked with creating a space that was professional and productive--a goal they achieved by combining more conventional work areas with relaxed break out rooms and creative spaces.
