Anything other than sticking a sofa, a beer fridge and an awesome Scalextric track should be illegal.
On-premises data centres are expensive to build and operate, which is one reason public cloud is so attractive … albeit not so attractive that organisations will immediately evacuate on-premises data centres. But it is generally accepted that lots of workloads will migrate to the cloud in coming years and that hybrid clouds …

Nice first attempt, but you have failed to list some optional equipment. Such as:
Pressurized (alcoholic) beverage dispenser (beer keg),
Horizontal beverage support counter (bar),
Nourishment container (bowl for peanuts),
Employee seating (bar stool),
Deluxe 'Power Point' display panel (flat screen TV),
Sound system, (jukebox),
Mood inducing lighting (strobe lights),
PHB attitude adjuster (baseball, cluebat, etc),
"""Candy""" (recreational drugs and pharmaceuticals),
Sporting equipment intended to """sharpen""" focus on achieving corporate goals (dart board with plenty of darts, and life size photos of obnoxious PHB's).
Combine these to create a 'desirable' work experience.
Soundproof it and turn it into a nuclear bunker with enough food to last one person two months encase it in a Faraday cage or add a mobile jammer.
Wait till someone you dislike is working late, check the logs for news websites they use. Hijack the dns for two news website and cut off the rest of the internet then serve pages claiming a nuclear attack has been launched. Use a phone jammer in the office and turn off the phone system for a few minutes.
As they open the door to the "bunker" have a sensor that sets off explosion sounds and a low rumbling on a sub woofer for that extra realistic effect.
There was one in Leeds I used to go to every now and then. On a hot summers day, temps reaching 30c (yes, that's extremely hot for the UK!), wifey asked me why I was putting my coat in the car. It was fecking *cold* inside that place!

Grow your own....
Already have Racks for the plants, already got your filtered air.... Just need to add specialist lights and hydration system.... I bet your average datacentre could easily be used to turn a tasty profit!!!! (and no-one will notice the power consumption to come knocking on your door!!!!
Anon - just in case!!
I had a similar idea years ago. At the time, my employer owned an old, vacant Bank building with a fairly large vault - probably 10' x 10'. We were the only dept that ever went into the bank building since we had a couple of small safes in the vault for our "offsite data backup" tape storage (it was "offsite" enough to keep the auditors happy). I was the only person who had both the combination and the key to the 14"-thick steel vault door.
I used to think about it, but never tried. My luck in such things tends to run from "bad" to "worse", so I knew I'd end up in irons if I tried. Best to keep the nose clean.
On a related note, you'd think an empty Bank with a reinforced concrete and steel vault would be a very safe place. Yes, it is when there are tornadoes, fires, etc.. But at 4:00 on Friday, when you go over by yourself to retrieve the Friday tapes, you can't help but think - "If there's some vagrant druggie hanging out somewhere in this building and he locks me in the vault, I'm totally screwed and probably gonna die slowly." Eerie...
