Encouraging Entrepreneurship The Google Way!
As we start another busy week in our world of interior architecture and design we find ourselves in unfamiliar surroundings but awesome surroundings at that, we decided to kick off our week with a team brainstorm at the latest business hub / entrepreneurial workspace in Dubai, MAKE Business Hub. Whilst the space is a very cool and inspiring workspace we won’t be blogging about it today, we will save that for another time, today’s feature project however is from the same mould and it seems one of the worlds power companies is now getting on the club workspace entrepreneurial train.
Google have recently opened their latest offering in London’s Tech City, the Google Campus is the latest social office space to hit the UK market and as usually when Google do something they really go all out. Designed by Jump Studios the 25,000 sq-ft space is an eclectic mix of recycled and salvaged furniture and materials split over seven floors. There are 200 work desks, meeting rooms throughout, event spaces and of course like any good workstation there is a café that keeps the inhabitants fully fueled and raring to go. This space and the design is a lot more restrained and paired back compared to other Google projects we have covered in this blog, but for us this a plus point. This space is the perfect platform for startups, the paired back and industrial look is quite representative of the startups that will use the space, in their early days, blank canvasses with so much possibility and potential. This is one of the reasons why we love this space and the other reasons are quite apparent in the cool images below.
