Facebook appoints Frank Gehry to revamp its new London offices

Facebook has appointed architect, Frank Gehry, to design its new London offices in Euston.

The social networking giant has appointed Gehry to design the interiors of its new 88,000 sq ft office at Brock Street after signing a ten year deal on the London office space.

The move will see Facebook rubbing  shoulders with the likes of Twitter, Manchester City and Debenhams at the British Land development, with the firm set to take up three floors of the property.

Search engine giant Google’s new King’s Cross headquarters is also located only a stones throw away from the office space.

Located at the British Land’s development at Regent’s Place, the new office will actually be more than double the size of the social networking site’s current office located in Covent Garden, and Facebook European chief Nicola Mendelsohn was confident the relocation would lead to a number of new staff being taken on board.

She said: “Our new home will give us the space to double the number of people working at Facebook London and build on what we’ve achieved there over the past few years, including the only Facebook Engineering Centre in Europe.

“We’re really excited to be able to welcome more talent to Facebook London and continue to help us provide the best possible experience for our growing Facebook community.”
