Log Cabins to be built inside Twitter HQ

Employees at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters will soon be dining in log cabins built during the late 1800s.

The tech company recently purchased a pair of Montana homesteader cabins off Craigslist. The structures will be dismantled and then installed at Twitter’s new digs in the Western Furniture Exchange and Merchandise Mart building on Market Street.

The cabins, which will be refurnished with new dining booths, will be placed within a larger open floor plan as a way to break up the space.

It’s a move that differentiates Twitter from all the other tech companies on the block, Olle Lundberg, CEO and founder of the architectural firm helping design the new space, told the Marin Independent Journal. The cabins also highlight the unofficial competition going on in Silicon Valley to provide unusual, creativity-inspiring workplaces.

“We’ve used the notion of the forest as a nice tie-in with Twitter and its bird logo,” Lundberg said. “To me, the log cabins fit into that since, obviously, they’re made from logs that come from the forest. It’s also about using natural materials. There’s something nice about the character of the real wood. … It isn’t something fake.”
