Google Office of California, USA

By: Seat Earnings

Its newest campus in Mountain View, California and executives say they aim to make it a place where employees in the company's advertising division feel more comfortable returning to the office for decades to come. 

The campus dubbed "Bay View" is located on 42 acres adjacent to NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View and will house 4,000 employees working on its ads products led by Google's VP of Ads Jerry Dischler. It includes two office buildings, a 1,000-person event center and 240 temporary hotel units for employees in town short-term.  

Google makes most of its money on advertisements but has employees scattered across the globe. The company reported $54.66 billion in advertising revenue for the first quarter — up from $44.68 billion the year prior. 

Executives and spokespeople did not disclose the financial cost of the newest campus. However, it is one of 20 key projects that will receive investments this year to the tune of nearly $10 billion. 

Google began construction of the complex in 2017, a few years before the coronavirus struck in 2020, launching a pandemic that dramatically altered attitudes about in-person office work — as well as the very nature of how those offices would be designed and operate. 

The new campus totals 1.1 million square feet, consisting of two big office buildings, a 1,000-person events center and a four-building lodging complex with 220 rooms that will accommodate short-term stays for employees. 

Mountain View-based Google says that it crafted the campus — which was designed in collaboration with world-renowned architects Bjarke Ingels Group and Heatherwick Studio — with the needs and wishes of employees first and foremost. 

“For those coming into the office, it was designed to balance Googlers’ desire to come together as teams with the need for an environment that enables deep-focus work,” Google said.
