The stimulating and interactive campus represents the Google EU Headquarters – designed by the Swiss architecture studio Camenzind Evolution in collaboration with local firm Henry J. Lyons Architects. Have a look at this interior design project in Dublin, Ireland.
A New Google Campus Boosting the Spirit of Innovation
Four buildings in the heart of Dublin’s historic docklands district, over 47’000 m2 of unique office space, a multicultural team belonging to more than 65 countries and speaking over 45 languages.
It’s the new Google Campus in Dublin, conceived to be an attractive workplace boosting the spirit of innovation.
Designed by the Swiss architecture studio Camenzind Evolution in collaboration with local firm Henry J. Lyons Architects, the campus represents the Google EU Headquarters and it’s the sales and finance centre point for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The aim was to create a stimulating and interactive campus and to do this, besides the offices, the architects projected 5 restaurants, 42 micro kitchens, game rooms, a fitness centre, a pool, a learning & development centre over 400 informal and formal meeting rooms.
Google believes that working in a healthy and balanced environment that encourages interaction among colleagues, can stimulate creativity and innovation.
Sustainability is another key focus area for Google and indeed all Google real estate projects work for LEED accreditation.
