A state-of-the-art fit-out for Google’s ambitious new headquarters in London’s Kings Cross
The office fit out of Google’s expansive new headquarters located at the heart of London’s Knowledge Quarter stretches to over 700,000 sq ft, providing a state-of-art office setting with a wealth of health and wellbeing amenities. The 11-storey building combines modern office settings, including formal and informal meeting areas and auditoriums, with an array of staff health amenities.
A wellness centre offers staff access to a gym, swimming pool and indoor multi-purpose sports hall. A rooftop garden stretches over multiple storeys and the building offers a variety of cafés and restaurants to cater to occupants.
Integrating a ‘smart building’ infrastructure into the design to improve comfort and energy efficiency, the project is aiming to achieve BREEAM Excellent and LEED Gold certifications.
This really is a once in a lifetime scheme! With a brief to build the best office in the world, this is a genuinely fun project to work on with Perkins and Will and an informed and enthusiastic client team. There are so many unique and forward-thinking aspects to this project, that challenge the traditional views of workspace design.
