We have become used to Google’s offices being completely different from anything we have ever seen before. The same trend continues in their third new office building in London. If you have seen, and loved, the London Engineering offices designed by the Penson Group, you should know that the same group of creative designers worked on Google’s London Headquarter.
These new offices are in the Central St. Giles Building in London’s Covent Garden. The main focus, just like with some other Google offices, is on relaxation that breeds efficiency. However, even though Google is an international company, these new offices are conspicuously British, with Union Jack flags that dress the walls in the reception area, Secret Garden areas on the roof, Town Hall press and meeting room for up to 200 and cozy Granny Flat area furnished in vintage style, as well as a garden space for the employees with a green thumb to enjoy themselves. There is also a gym with a shower block, a dance studio, a massage parlour and several different relaxation rooms. The materials used in creation of Google offices in London are devoid of any harmful ingredients as much as possible and recycled materials were implemented.
Even though it might not seem so, these offices are meant to be worked in. There are 1250 desks and 1250 collaboration seats in Google’s London Headquarters. Still, sitting at your desk all day might be a bit difficult when you can enjoy the stunning panoramic views of London skyline from your very workplace.
