Google’s Fresh New Offices in Tel Aviv


Google has recently opened up new offices in Tel Aviv, Israel that boast a balanced aesthetic of modern design and nature. The vibrant and welcoming space is designed by Camenzind Evolution, a company that has worked with Google in the past to create extraordinary working environments across the globe. In collaboration with Setter Architects and Studio Yaron Tal, the space offers 85,000 square feet of inspiring architecture.

The seven-floor space, located in Electra Tower, is filled with different themes within the common areas on each level. A statement about the architectural project reads: “Nearly 50% of all areas have been allocated to create communication landscapes, giving countless opportunities to employees to collaborate and communicate with other Googler's in a diverse environment that will serve all different requirements and needs.” While the cubicle and office work stations are fairly standard in their design, there are still enough embellishments walking through the workplace to spark creativity.

From the large windows allowing employees to look over the urban landscape of the city to the trees and picnic tables giving the impression that one is walking through an orchard, the office presents a uniquely inviting environment to expand one’s mind. It is also through this separation of desks and cubicles from the vineyard-like communication areas that the office seeks to provide different settings for varying innovative work processes–whether than be collaboratively or in isolation.

Bystander Kim Joiner managed to film the alligator while it trekked the grassy path.

Shot in the grasslands of Inner Mongolia, the resulting portraits and short film pay respect to this ancient tradition.
