Facebook officially moved into its new headquarters in Menlo Park today as planned.The place is the former headquarters of Sun Microsystems, but Facebook has put a ton of work into it over the last nine months.
The company’s real estate director John Tenanes said in a blog post this morning that Facebook ripped down all the cubicles and offices to encourage openness and collaboration, lined the walls with whiteboard paint for brainstorming sessions, and exposed the ducts on the ceiling to give the place an unfinished look and “remind us that our work is never done.”
The courtyard outside is still filled with bulldozers and dirt, but eventually it will hold cafes, coffee shops, a health centre, and onsite doctors.
But the interior is mostly done. Here’s what it looks like…
Notice the unfinished ductwork. Facebook purposely let it be exposed to remind employees that their work is never done.
A Facebook tradition: the vending machine filled with free technical parts. Glad to see it made the move.
