2013 - 2014, Platinum A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Inspiration
A thriving New Campus boosting the Spirit of Innovation
Creativity
In June 2013, Google Ireland opened the doors to its thriving new campus: Four buildings located in the heart of Dublin’s historic docklands district. With over 47000 m2 of unique office space, the Campus represents the Google EU Head-quarters and serves as the centre for sales and finances in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Design Challenges
For the Masterplan the architects had to find a smart solution for the nearly impossible – to create a stimulating and interactive Campus within a bustling environment in the midst of the inner city
Production Technology
The tallest of the four Campus buildings is the newly constructed 14-storey building Google Docks which is also the tallest commercial building in Dublin. Two other buildings – Gasworks House and Gordon House – have been home for Google already and were completely refitted. The fourth building, One Grand Canal – fondly referred to as ‘1GC’ – was newly fitted out. A bridge is planned to be built to connect Google Docks, Gasworks House and Gordon House, encouraging an easy flow between buildings and people. For the Masterplan the architects had to find a smart solution for the nearly impossible – to create a stimulating and interactive Campus within a bustling environment in the midst of the inner city. Apart from innovative office spaces, the Masterplan also required the successful organisation of a multitude of additional functions, such as 5 restaurants, 42 micro kitchens and communication hubs, game rooms, fitness center, pool, wellness areas, conference, learning and development centre, tech stops, over 400 informal and formal meeting rooms, phone booths, etc. In order to create a working atmosphere that is a true testament to Google’s unique culture and values, the architects have conducted many in-depth researches before starting with their outstanding design. There is a clear separation between the employees’ traditional desk-based work environment and communication areas, granting privacy and focus whenever required for desk-based individual working and a vast variety of spectacular spaces for collaborating and sharing ideas.
