Are Apple about to open the coolest office space in the world?


It was announced this week that Apple are planning to move into their new 175-acre campus, named the Apple Park, in April.

The company will begin the process of moving more than 12,000 people into the new campus in April and they expect it to take over six months to get everyone in and settled - which will surely take some mammoth planning. 


What we're wondering is who gets priority on the new gaffe? Does the iPhone team get first dibs on which office they fancy ahead of the iPad team?

Surely Tim Cook has already picked out his fancy office and chances are Jony Ive and his team of innovators have sorted where they’ll cook up the next batch of game-changing products for Apple.

Once the office moves get underway there’s still plans for the construction of certain buildings and the surrounding parkland to continue through the summer. The futuristic California campus has slowly but surely taken shape and what a magnificent building it’s going to be for the world’s most expensive company. 

The new space was first envisioned by Steve Jobs to be a centre for both creativity and collaboration and Apple have transformed miles of nothingness into a eye-catching green space right in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley which houses the ring shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot building.

Apple certainly don’t do things by half and the new building is going to be clad entirely in the world’s largest panels of curved glass.

To honour Steve Jobs, the company have made sure that his influence on the company will last forever with the naming of the theatre at the Apple Park as the Steve Jobs Theatre. Opening later this year, the entrance to the 1,000-seat auditorium is a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon-fibre roof. 


The Steve Jobs Theatre will be situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within Apple Park — overlooking meadows and the main building.

To pad out the 2.8 million-square-foot building, the Apple Park will also include a visitors centre with an Apple Store and cafe open to the public, a 100,000-square-foot fitness centre for Apple employees, secure research and development facilities alongside the Steve Jobs Theatre. The parklands offer two miles of walking and running paths for employees, plus an orchard, meadow and pond within the ring’s interior grounds.

It makes you wonder if they’ll ever get any work done…
