Google’s offices are the stuff of legend.
Their new offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are no exception: Plants sprout from the walls and ceiling, while bright decor make for an office that feels a lot like a technicolor jungle. There’s a boardroom that looks like a cave, complete with stalactites, and playground swings in the café.
Like Google’s other offices, the entire space is open and connected, meant to foster collaboration among employees.
“They wanted a space where everyone could interact — they wanted to get all their people into the same space, and for that space to have a sense of identity that would make their presence known in Kuala Lumpur,” project team leader Ramesh Subramaniam said in a press release. “We used a lot of different elements that relate specifically to Malaysia, but in an abstract way.”
The offices were designed by global workplace design firm M Moser Associates, who have an office in Kuala Lumpur.
