Google has spent the last decade (plus) growing an internationally recognized technological empire — and not just online. Google is taking over the world IRL too, opening, in just a few years, insanely cool offices everywhere from London and Zurich to Pittsburgh. Google’s latest office comes by way of Tel Aviv, Israel, and features everything any employee could possibly desire. Slides? Surfboards? Lush vegetation? Check, check, check. Occupying eight floors within the city's Elektra Building, the 850,000 square foot campus was designed by Camenzind Evolution (the same firm that completed the Google Zurich EMEA Engineering Hub in 2008) in collaboration with Setter Architects and Studio Yaron Tal.
Featuring an emphasized focus on community and collaborative work spaces, the new office dedicates one whole floor to “Campus Tel Aviv,” a home base of sorts for entrepreneurs, developers, and start-up companies. Oh, and did we mention the office even includes three restaurants? Offering employess non-kosher, kosher dairy, and kosher meat options? Yeah, we're a little jealous. Mostly because we don't in fact work in an office that connects floors via playground slides.
