Last week I added photos of some of interior design projects on a sidebar. I realized that I never talked about my last school project, Google Office Building. Before I started this project, I thought it would be pretty boring. Office buildings don't exactly scream exciting. Much to my surprise, this project was my favorite one.
What made this project exciting was that this was a Google office building. Have you seen any photos are their spaces?!! It's amazing! Google offices are colorful and fun.
Other than their colorful spaces, the Google Culture is incredibly interesting. I'm sure that if many other company's followed Google's example, employee productivity would be much higher. Here's a description from their Corporate Information website:
The Google Office that we designed has six floors. This was a group project and each person worked on one floor. I designed the sixth floor. Our team decided that each floor would have a different accent color, pulling inspiration from the Google logo. Unfortunately, the Google logo doesn't have six colors, so we had to add a few. We pulled colors out of a hat, and my accent color was purple. Here are some highlights from the cubicle area.

The back of the chair has purple mesh fabric.
Here's a perspective drawing of the cubicle space. Notice the Google homepage on the computers.
I did the drawing in SketchUp, a Google software product.
