Designed in collaboration with HLW of New York and London, the fit out of offices for up to 750 Google employees over six floors and including meeting rooms, tea stations, cellular offices, breakout spaces, a new 380-seat auditorium and an expanded canteen
14,908 sqm² (160,469 ft²)
The project consisted of fitting out three buildings, of which parts were already occupied, linking all three buildings with a new internal footbridge over the street at first floor level and redesigning the streetscape below to create a ‘Google Zone’.
The overall theme was ‘posh garage’ – a play on the idea of working from one’s own garage. A series of interviews, workshops and ‘Googler’ surveys gave guidance on how staff would like to see their workplace.
In keeping with their commitment to sustainable design, it was Google’s first project outside the US to be part of the Google Green Team Healthy Materials Program.
