Google Reveals Plans for 1 Million Square Foot BIG-Designed Campus in Sunnyvale, California | ArchDaily

Google has unveiled plans for a new BIG-designed campus in Sunnyvale, California that will be located just a few miles from its long-awaited Googleplex HQ.

Located at 100 and 200 W. Caribbean Drive, the complex will consist of two terracing buildings containing over 1 million square feet of office space and room for up to 4,500 employees.

And as in many of BIG’s most successful projects, the design concept centers on fostering activity and maximizing accessible space, including on its ramped roof where Google workers will be able to walk, bike or rollerblade between levels. The development is also aiming for high standards of environmental sustainability, including a LEED Gold rating, an integrated public transportation system, and a native, low-water landscaping plan.

By bringing the roof down to ground level, the buildings will become a visual extension of the surrounding parks and neighborhood, a site that Google envisions as a future mixed-use community where its employees could both work and reside.
