Amazon's Spheres garden office

As garden offies go, Amazon's Spheres project is quite something. An open-plan workplace for the company's employees in Seattle, it's inspired by conservatories such as those in Kew Gardens and has more than 40,000 individual plants, and over 300 plant species from more than 50 countries. The complex of three connected domes - which look a little like the Eden Project's main buildings - includes treehouse meeting rooms, river and waterfall features, and a four-story living wall.

“Our goal with The Spheres was to create a unique gathering place where employees could collaborate and innovate together, and where the Seattle community could gather to experience biodiversity in the center of the city,” said Vice President of Global Real Estate and Facilities, John Schoettler.

The largest dome is 27m tall and 39 metres in diameter.
