Take a tour of Xiaomi's Google-like office (photos)

Located just a stone's throw from its current office, the Chinese company's new digs will play host to the e-commerce team.

Check out Xiaomi's latest digs

While it looks like a shopping mall on the outside, this is actually Xiaomi's newest office, located just a stone's throw from its current office building (at a shopping mall).

There's also a Xiaomi store

Inside, the public can check out the company's latest handsets and TVs, or get accessories for phones.

Don't say Apple?

Well, the interior feels very inspired by Apple's retail style, but the staff here is dressed in red instead of blue.

Wall-to-wall accessories

Here you can find accessories for your Xiaomi Redmi or MI-3, as well as an excited Hugo Barra snapping pictures with his MI-3 to share on social media.

Mascots, mascots everywhere

Perhaps I should have asked for one of these cuddly Xiaomi rabbit toys for a giveaway.

Wheeeee!

When you first step inside the office proper, this is the first thing you'll notice. I'm sure it makes getting out of the office really fun.

Inquire at front desk

If you're visiting the new office, you'll need to get yourself registered at this cool-looking front desk.

Woof!

I'm told this is the company dog, originally a stray that was rescued.

Cubicles are the same everywhere

Though cubicles generally look the same everywhere, Xiaomi has added plenty of greenery to brighten things up a little.

Plenty of meeting spots

If you need a place to sit down and talk, there are plenty of meeting areas to be found throughout the office.

Here's one with a little more privacy.

Yet more meeting spots

Or you can just sit down in the open to admire the view of the road and what appear to be residential buildings.

Sunflowers

You'll find plenty of artwork on the various floors, including this large reproduction of Van Gogh's Sunflowers.

Food, glorious food

Located in the basement is a giant cafeteria, where Xiaomi employees can grab a bite at a subsidized price (no, it's not free).
