Google has unveiled its Bay View campus in Mountain View, California, designed by BIG and Heatherwick Studio.

The 1.1-million-square-feet campus comprises two office buildings, an events centre, and 240 short-term employee accommodation units.

The structures feature tent-like roofs with inward curving panels fitted with 50,000 silver solar panels generating nearly 7 megawatts of energy.

The upper floors of the office buildings are flexible, supported on slim white columns and open-plan, with gathering and social spaces below.

Clerestory windows provide natural light, and automated window shades adjust light throughout the day. Bay View aims to operate on carbon-free energy 90 per cent of the time, utilising solar skin and nearby wind farms.

This project has been longlisted in the workplace project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
