Technology companies have long been aware of the power that architecture and interior design have on employee satisfaction and productivity, not to mention brand awareness. For those that can afford to build their headquarters from the ground up, not being bound by an existing structure means an even greater opportunity to make a statement.
British newspaper The Telegraph has compiled a slideshow on several recent and upcoming tech HQs designed by U.S. firm NBBJ: Amazon (Seattle), Google (Mountain View, CA; shown above), Samsung (San Jose, CA), Alipay (Hangzhou, China), and Tencent (Shenzhen, China).
What we especially like about the online gallery is how it showcases NBBJ’s ability to design buildings and campuses that are all compelling architecturally, but none of which looks or feels like any of the others. See the slideshow here.
