Google unveils new Amsterdam Office

Google has become almost as famous for its quirky office interiors as it is for its capability to find anything in a few seconds anywhere on the internet.


Google Amsterdam's insignia

The new Amsterdam offices does not disappoint on the quirk-radar, the renewed interior by dutch studio D/DOCK has been conceived off the garage where google founders larry page and sergey brin started the company.



Boasting with elements such as graffiti clad walls, cardboard box lights and the seemingly legally required foosball table. D/DOCK also reflected Dutch culture in the offices with visually impressive light fittings that looks like the Dutch dessert stroopwafel, bicycles scattered throughout and retro caravans which serves as private meeting rooms.



Located in the southern part of the city, the 3,000 square meter expanse has been transformed into an interactive landscape. Each floor features its own “cave”, with all general facilities including huddle rooms, meeting areas, micro kitchens and video booths positioned at the core of the building. The ‘neighbourhoods’ which define the individual work areas surround the central cave element; all situated adjacent to the window affording employees a 180 degree view overlooking the city while at their desks.



These offices once again proves that when it comes to a worker friendly environment Google is at the top of their game.
