Google offices are known for being imaginative and unconventional, and now the company has unveiled plans for an expansion of its current Silicon Valley complex. They are beginning construction on a new campus, called ‘Bayview,’ which will consist of nine different buildings connected by bridges.

Most of the buildings will be four stories tall and they will be shaped like bent rectangles in order to create outdoor space between them. There will also be access to a green roof with an outdoor cafe.

The LA Times reports that the 1.1-million-square-foot campus was designed using reams of data, with the team observing where the sun rises and sets, wind patterns, and the daily habits of thousands of Google employees.

As a result, the campus will allow the majority of employees to work by natural light, without any glare from the sun. It will also be the largest office complex in the U.S. with all radiant heating. The campus expansion is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
