Although Apple’s second spaceship-like can’t compare to the size of its futuristic 2.8-million-square-foot Campus 2 predecessor in Cupertino, the Sunnyvale campus, located just four miles away, is still massive in its own right. Designed by HOK Architects, the new Central & Wolfe campus will comprise 770,000 square feet of potential office space and room for 4,000 workers. The project will replace an existing business park occupied with nine buildings built in the 1960s and ’70s with a white and curvaceous six-story building made up of three wings centered on a large inner courtyard.

Described by the project’s marketing website, notanotherbox.com, as a “blending of art, science and nature,” the Central & Wolfe campus will double as an oasis of green space. A lush green roof tops the building and offers 90,000 square feet of accessible green space irrigated by reclaimed water. In addition to the large central courtyard, three interior landscaped courtyards punctuate the structure to provide access to nature, natural light, and views of the outdoors through full-height windows. Rooftop solar panels will provide an alternative source of energy. The majority of parking will be tucked underground, while paths for cyclists and pedestrians are given priority.
