Twitter’s headquarters are getting a new addition: log cabin dining rooms.
The social networking company putting in two log cabins from the 1800s that will serve as dining halls from employees, according to The Marin Independent Journal.
The cabins that will be installed hail from Montana ranches within the next few weeks, according to The Associated Press.
The cabins were bought by Olle Lundberg of Lundberg Design in San Francisco. The price of the cabins were not disclosed.
The cabins are a way of breaking up the large spaces in the Twitter Inc. headquarters.
“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. Visually there’s a patina of age. It isn’t something fake. It’s real. It’s reclaimed. It’s got some history to it, just as the building has history to it.”
Employees will be able to sit in booths inside the cabins and watch t.v. on four separate monitors set on a concrete pillar in the middle of the room.
