The new Google Office in Amsterdam was redesigned by top Interior design studio D/DOCK. Inspired by the garage where founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google, D/DOCK turned this 3.000 square meters office space into an interactive landscape for the local Google team.

“Sustainability played a vital role in the restyling of the office. Existing meeting furniture, individual work places and parts of the micro-kitchens were offered a second life after refurbishment. D/DOCK adhered to Google’s healthy material list by using non-toxic materials only and designed with a great focus on energy and water consumption.”

The Amsterdam office is considered an intelligent landscape. Each individual work place is window adjacent – so if you work for Google you have a 180º view over the city of Amsterdam.

The office restaurant can set up to 80 Googlers and Google’s Healthy Food program guaranties well-balanced menus. It is also equipped with a gym, meditation room and the desk bikes all offer opportunities to stay in shape, both physically and mentally.
