Design company D/DOCK recently completed a new office space for Google in Amsterdam. It was inspired by the concept of the garage where the founders started Google. There are many quirky elements throughout to demonstrate this era; from graffiti walls to exposed ceilings. Existing furniture was refurbished and re-used to bring sustainability into the design. Each floor has its own cave in which general facilities such as meeting rooms are situated, and the neighbourhoods surround the central caves. Every work place is adjacent to the window, giving all employees a 180 degree view of the city. The layout allows them to communicate and work together, but also gives everyone personal space. “It is a place that makes the employee perform better by offering a work environment that meets their needs”. “Happiness, comfort, flexibility, relaxation, well balanced nutrition, exercise, daylight, fresh air and visual stimulation are some of the fundamentals that makes this office a healthy one”. There is a Healthy Food program to ensure a well-balanced meal for employees and a gym, meditation room and desk bikes to be used by the staff.
