Google's New Tel Aviv Office Will Blow Your Mind
If you don’t want to feel bad about where you work, I’d tell you to stop reading, but you’ve probably already seen one of the pictures, so it’s already too late.
These pictures are from Google’s brand new office space in Tel Aviv, Israel, which takes up eight floors of the Electra Tower. The pictures speak for themselves, but it’s pretty incredible when you consider that this much variation has been stuffed into eight floors. Just about every design aesthetic you can think of is here somewhere. Rustic? Check. Futuristic. That’s there. Beach? Got some of that. Mid-to-upscale urban restaurant? Of course. The list goes on and on, but none of that stuff matters, because apparently there’s a tunnel slide you can take from one floor to another, and that is just way too awesome.
Each floor supposedly has its own theme, and it’s just the social areas that are decked out – the working areas and cubicles are fairly standard office space fare, although they still manage to be a lot nicer looking than where most of us probably work. And, despite all the pomp, the offices are pretty eco-friendly, too – the Google Tel Aviv offices are currently applying for LEED Platinum certification, which would be a first in Israel.
