Facebook HeadquartersEdit profile
Located in a former laboratory constructed in the 1960′s, the building houses over 700 employees.
The designers re-used many of the former lab benches and equipment for the new offices.
The design uses colour-coding to differentiate between teams within the open-plan space.
Some walls are left unfinished so that employees can add writing and artwork to them.
The Facebook website itself was used to consult employees about the new design and to keep them up to date about it’s development.
Here’s some more information from Studio O+A:
Palo Alto, California
Employees of Facebook recently moved to a new headquarters that facilitates interaction and connection, reflecting the company’s mission as a social networking website provider.
Formerly a laboratory facility for high-tech manufacturer Agilent Technologies, the 150,000-square-foot structure at Palo Alto’s Stanford Research Park brings together more than 700 employees originally scattered throughout 10 locations in and around downtown Palo Alto.
The design of the space relied heavily on input from the users, appropriate for a flatly structured company that weights every employee’s opinion equally. O+A designers interviewed employees about what they wanted from their new headquarters.
