Interiors Google23

As one of the leading web browser companies, google needed to grow in the building they were.

The design concept is really simple…the city of Mexico.

Google33When you enter the reception you find this really white space, with a bright colored logo, that lets you in into two different spaces.

One, the techtalk, a big auditorium for multiple uses. Here the focus of design is the Mexico city google map carpet, which captures you eye the moment you step in.

Google29The other door let you into Mexico city. First you see Chapultepec, an informal meeting space with swings, a lake and a very big tree. Then you see that the carpet is actually a street that takes you everywhere. You can take an actual refurbished cab and have a phone conversation, or you can take the subway, that holds all the technical rooms in the office.

Google17You can continue your journey either south, and find workstations and Xochimilco, where you can have a videoconference inside a Trajinera, which is a traditional Mexican boat; or you can go north, and enter Teatro Blanquita, a big meeting space where Google Hangouts happen.

Google21Food and catering is really important for the company to give to their employees, so you can find a deli in the middle of the space where you can either eat or meet.

There are also several amenities such as gym, showers and massage areas to keep the employees happy.

Google2Color and lighting design worked together to really enhanced the look, the productivity and the result.

Designed to have little impact in the environment, this offices follow really strict green guidelines such as low VOC´s materials, green carpeting, certified wood, and recycle bins. This offices got LEED Gold Certified.

Google31Google works totally different as the majority of companies, and because this is a young company with most employees being gen-Xers we decided to give a fun yet functional ambiance, or as they call it “frugal space”.
