In May this year, Fave Malaysia moved its employees into a brand-new office designed just for the brand.
The office was built with the contribution and expertise of H Space, a company that specialises in creating suitable work environments for brands.
Welcome to the office
Set in Bangsar South, the office overlooks the city of Kuala Lumpur and employees get a nice almost-360 view from the 28th floor.
Through the many windows, you can also watch as the sun sets against the city at dusk, signalling the end of the workday closing in.
Fave appears to be a company that’s (deservingly) proud of their brand, and the word “Fave” can be found throughout the space.
At the entrance into the immediate working area, you’ll see a hot pink word sculpture that spells out “fave” welcoming you.
In the working area, etched deeply into a wall is again the word “FAVE”, with the “F”, “A” and “E” designed to be spaces where you can sit and work, too.
The designated working area is communal and employs an open-concept approach so employees can move around and easily interact with colleagues.
There’s room for everyone
With about 180 employees at Fave Malaysia, they’ve ensured that the office is spacious enough for the comfort of everyone.
If you need a spot where you can be rid of distractions to focus on your work, there are private booths available for your use.
For collaboration amongst colleagues, discussion rooms offer you the privacy to meet up and talk freely.
There’s even a small hall equipped with a projector where presentations and events can be held for office affairs without disrupting the workflow of uninvolved employees.
Employees are also given individual lockers that they can safely store their personal belongings in when they leave the office momentarily or for the day.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
Throughout the workday, you may find yourself getting sleepy, especially so after lunch. You may also just find yourself needing a short break from work.
For the sleepy ones, there are napping pods. These dimmed individual spaces come complete with mattresses and pillows for you to catch a quick snooze.
To combat your boredom, there are the choices of a ping pong table, an electronic scoreboard arcade basketball sports game and an indoor mini-golf course.
There’s also an indoor exercise bike if you want to cycle the drowsiness away or fit in a spontaneous workout during your break.
If the best way for you to shake off the sleepiness or boredom is by talking to your colleagues, a bar is available for you to sit and chat at.
For those who love snacking at moments during the workday, there’s a stocked-up pantry with cookies, chips and energy bars.
Food and transport options
Fave’s office is still a work in progress, despite all the facilities and amenities already available.
Every couple of weeks, there are new additions to the space for the benefit of employees. Just last week, a prayer room was added for their Muslim employees.
The inside of the office may be impressive, but you might be wondering about the ease of getting food and access to public transportation.
The Sphere is a nearby mall with a bunch of restaurant options while the Horizon has a food court. For those on more of a budget, street stalls and mamaks are a couple of minutes’ walk away.
Kerinchi and KL Gateway University stations are also within walking distance, and Fave employees make good use of their accessibility to public transportation.
Employees who drive can easily find parking in the building Fave occupies but unfortunately, while seasonal parking is available, the rates are not subsidised by the company.
All in all, personally I’d say that Fave is quite the attractive office in terms of facilities, amenities and accessibility to food options and public transportation.
The one thing that I can’t speak for is Fave Malaysia’s company culture, as it’s something one would have to experience for themselves to make a judgement upon.

Having taken this office “tour”, if you’re interested in applying to work at Fave, they’re currently hiring for a number of roles such as Business Development Executive, Digital Marketing Specialist and IT Executive.
There’s also an internship program available for those simply looking to gain some short-term working experience with a well-known company.
