Most of us would have seen Facebook’s impressive Palo Alto office space designed by Studio O+A. But what most people won’t have known is that the Palo Alto Facebook office was actually done on the cheap, using bulk order furniture and minimal project costs. This is because it was always the company’s intention for it to be a temporary solution, and as such Facebook has begun to slowly move employees to their new Menlo Park campus.
This new office project is being completed by Gensler, incidently the same firm that’s working on Facebook’s new London space too. The office is still clearly heavily influenced by the Studio O+A style and philosophy, and we can’t wait for the project to be completed so that we may see the office in all its glory.
We can also see from the pictures that Facebook is using Steelcase’s RoomWizard meeting room scheduling system which we covered here not too long ago. Tres cool.
