Beehives and “treehouse” lounges are the latest office perks companies are using to get workers back in the office.

Aug 27 2021

Beehives and “treehouse” lounges are the latest office perks companies are using to get workers back in the office. Tricked-out office spaces appear to be the next workplace trends companies are offering to get workers excited to work in-person again. Investment company Nuveen is adding two beehives (equipped with beekeepers, of course) to its seventh-floor terrace as part of the company’s renovation plans for its New York office; LendingTree’s new headquarters in North Carolina feature airy “treehouse” lounges on each floor graced with a pitched trellis overhead and greenery-filled planters; and Springdale Green’s Texas office (which was developed on a former brownfield site) is taking the treehouse concept to the next level with an outdoor boardwalk and bird blind viewing area overlooking native grasses and woodland plants. Goldman Sachs, Beacon Capital, and Montreal-based Alvéole are also following Nuveen’s beehive approach and are integrating the feature into their properties. Some companies are taking a toned-down approach by integrating more greenery, vegetable beds, and garden areas, with the same goal of bringing the health and wellness aspect that nature offers to the workplace.
