Google 237 Moffet Park Drive
This project is an extension of Google’s Moffett Place campus and is inspired by its history as a research and development facility that housed one of the first supercomputers in the early 1960s.
This 248,463 square-foot zero net energy campus was not just a tenant improvement; it included a full seismic retrofit including the merging and repurposing of two dilapidated existing buildings. The Design includes a 15,000 square foot café with full kitchen individual workspace, conference rooms, collaborative huddle spaces, training rooms, outdoor terrace, courtyards, cafes, video production studio, a maker space game room, wellness center, and secret spaces for discovery.
The Oculus, positioned and sized to create the greatest impact for daylighting, is the most ambitious design gesture—a huge penetration cut through the roof and structure of the larger of the two-story buildings, its rim tapering upward from the roof, pulling light and a view of the sky into the core. As part of our scope, we framed, sheathed and provided the stucco finish for the new oculus.
An intriguing, curved wall, seen from a glass-walled lobby, teases and invites users to discover a snail-shaped mystery room. The room’s organic configuration spirals inward to shape and envelope the intimate space at its center. Intended for informal staff gatherings or entertaining, the room is equipped with amenities for events.
