Airbnb is a billion-dollar startup that lets you rent or book rooms with peers.Check out Airbnb’s cool San Francisco headquarters.

Start by walking down this long hallway. What's that in back?

It's the old PanAm logo on the wall. The windows make it look like the inside of an aeroplane. PanAm was synonymous with air travel back in the day.

The office itself is pretty swanky, as fits a member of the billion-dollar club. Those chairs look comfy!

But the coolest part are the conference rooms, which were designed after AirBnb listings. This one is based on a mushroom cabin in Aptos, California.

Here's the original.

Now head into this conference room.

It's based on an apartment in Hong Kong. That's online marketing manager Maria Hwang with her head down working.

Here's that place in Hong Kong. Airbnb worked with the apartment owners to get the details right, all the way down to that picture on the wall.

Here's an outside view of a couple more conference rooms.

See? Here's the original.

This one is based on an apartment in Soho, New York.

It's packed with art.

The kitchen is just a kitchen, although those coloured fridges look pretty cool.

While the guys get an antelope's head.
