Facebook West, a new campus headquarters by Frank Gehry



Famous architect Frank Gehry has been commissioned to design a new campus headquarters for Facebook. The project was initiated by co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and will complete the company’s current headquarters. The campus will be called Facebook West and will be located across the highway from Facebook East, their current headquarters.

Facebook West will be a 420,000 square foot facility and it will be organized into a sort of neighborhoods. These areas won’t be clearly delimitated but will rather flow into each other, thus inviting to interaction and sociability. It’s an attempt to create a collaborative and community-like environment. Of course, it will also be a luxurious community with a modern design. It will feature a series of modern offices spaces and it will basically be a flexible open floor plan.

The new campus will have arcade-filled lounge areas as well as an extensive roof garden. It will feature a very nice balance between work-related spaces and recreational areas. The main goal was to create a space that the company can adapt and manipulate. It will contain a series of spaces such as outdoor-terraced cafes, a lounge area where the employees can play arcade games, relax but also bond with their co-workers. It’s an ambitious and very well organized project that will begin in the spring of 2013. It’s difficult to say when it will be completed but you can be sure you’ll know when that happens.{found on bloomberg}.
