You don't need to be Facebook or Google to get a cool office in Asia, as Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Asia Pacific HQ shows.

Located in Singapore, the new Asia Pacific headquarters of Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares a skybridge link with HP Inc. Both companies completed its split earlier this year, with HPE taking on the server and networking side of things, and HP Inc. continuing with the PC and printer business.

There's a wide open area for employees who don't want to work at their desks. The triangular design and split wooden beams help let light through, while still serving as a barrier for privacy.

There's a side facing the windows with views of greenery as well as residential buildings.

The usual office space is a lot more mundane.
