Google’s London office space gets new look

Professional interior designer, Scott Browning, has transformed Google’s new London office space with his artistic flair.

The 40,000 sq ft office space on Buckingham Palace Road will accommodate over 300 staff.

The office space has been specially designed to maximise creativity and allow a collaborative environment for the growing number of employees at Google’s London office.

Many iconic elements have been incorporated into the design, including red telephone booths based on traditional BT telephone boxes. Other features include brightly coloured timber beach huts for use as meeting rooms, and giant coloured dice where employees and visitors can make individual conference calls.

UK Facilities Manager at Google, Jane Preston, said: “The first impressions of visitors and our staff have been very positive. The project fits well with our real estate and HR strategy and will definitely help support our growth plans. We see the work environment as a major recruitment factor for us to compete for the best talent and this new office certainly does that.”
