D/DOCK Redesigned Google’s Amsterdam Office, And It’s Better Than Where Anyone Else Works
The garage where founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google was the inspiration for them commissioning D/DOCK to re-design their Amsterdam office. Quirky elements throughout the office illustrate this era, from graffiti walls and cardboard box lights to the exposed ceilings and container wall in the 70-seater auditorium. Sustainability played a vital role in the restyling of the office, as existing furniture, individual work places, and parts of the micro-kitchens were offered a second life after refurbishment. The SLAMXHYPE offices are pretty great, but Google spaces are on another level.
