If you’ve kept up with Facebook’s massive growth over the past few years, you’ll know that when it comes to headquarters, they don’t do things by halves. Ever.
And their latest base in Silicon Valley is definitive proof of that. This week they moved into their new 430,000-square foot warehouse nicknamed “MPK20” (Menlo Park, building 20), and it was designed by architectural genius Frank Gehry.
The new state of the art home for the social giant boasts the world’s biggest open floor plan – which has countless private off-areas in which to work and/or relax. But if you need that extra bit of chill, why not head up to the 9-acre park located on the roof with a half-mile walking trail, over 400 trees and relaxing areas to work in. Sounds alright, doesn’t it?
Always the philosopher, Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to speak about their new home:
The building itself is pretty simple and isn’t fancy. That’s on purpose. We want our space to feel like a work in progress. When you enter our buildings, we want you to feel how much left there is to be done in our mission to connect the world.
I don’t know how unfinished this place is, but it’s definitely unreal – and working here has GOT to be insane.
