Google’s New London Office Design Features British-Themed Spaces [Pics]

The search giant uses local inspiration to makeover its offices, with Union Flags in reception, rooftop gardens, a “granny flat” area, and allotments.

Google’s new “super HQ” at Central Saint Giles in London’s Covent Garden has features inspired by the local area and was created using mostly reclaimed or recycled materials. Designed by PENSON, the offices have Union Flags displayed on the walls of the reception area, secret gardens on the roof with panoramic views of the city, a Town Hall meeting space seating 200 people, a cozy “Granny Flat” area with rocking chairs and vintage furnishings, and allotments for the employees.
