Apple’s Futuristic New Office Space
Doughnut shaped buildings seem to be headline news this week, with the announcements of the BBC’s landmark Television Centre being put up for sale and plans being
revealed for Apple’s new futuristic headquarters.
AppleΓÇÖs proposed office space, housing more than 12,000 staff, is still very much in the planning stage with an expectant move in date by 2015. Located within the Silicon Valley, California, the campus site is estimated to cover around 150 acres, bringing together employees that are currently spread out over the state.
Steve Jobs, CEO, describes the building as potentially becoming “the best office space” in the world with “the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use”. The curved four storey building will house its own energy centre, a 3000 seater cafe, underground parking and an auditorium, all set in landscaped surroundings.
The estimated costs of the project have still not been revealed but for Apple, with a market valuation over $300billion, the opportunity to translate the stylish design of its products into its headquarters could soon become a reality.
