Google is known as a company whose office design breaks from tradition, and their new Tel Aviv office certainly does that. Designed by Camenzind Evolution in collaboration with Israeli design teams Setter Architects and Studio Yaron Tal, the company’s floors of the Electra Tower look like a hotel lounge, park, and cafe all rolled into one.

Opened in December, the new office is for Google Israel’s growing teams of engineers, sales, and marketing staff and features nearly 500 workstations. It offers stunning views across the whole city and the sea, and merges rustic and modern design elements.

Some areas feature wood panelling, trees, benches, wood chippings, and even a tractor, while others feature sleek, white surfaces with futuristic-looking stools, workstations, and a slide. Camenzind Evolution writes:

Each floor was designed with a different aspect of the local identity in mind, illustrating the diversity of Israel as a country and nation. Each of the themes were selected by a local group of Googlers, who also assisted in the interpretation of those chosen ideas.
