Google Campus [6] is a seven story co-working and event space in the center of London’s tech hub, otherwise known as Silicon Roundabout [4]. The co-working facility provides office space for Google employees and space to support London’s start-up community. The facilities host event space, social areas, meeting rooms, and presentation theaters to facilitate discussion, business, and education. Everyone in the building can enjoy the rooftop deck, the moss-covered courtyard, 40-bicycle parking area, a cafe. and communal meeting areas.

In the upper floors, Google employees enjoy a dynamic and flexible working environment with a variety of working options from open tables, private desks, lockers, hot desks [7], and formal and informal meeting areas. Shipping containers [8] sit in the middle of the space and hold work spaces and kitchenettes. Reclaimed fruit crates are used as shelving and exhibition space in the reception area, and LEGO bricks are used on the front desk. Industrial and low-tech decor, like plywood furniture, dominates the office, creating a strong sense of place and allowing the environment to easily be adapted as needed in the future.
