Graffiti walls and a caravan are just some of the interesting design features in Google Amsterdam's newly renovated office.
The extensive refurbishment, by design studio D/DOCK, details quirky elements throughout the work place after using the inspiration of the garage where founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin started Google.
The designers have put cardboard box lights on the exposed ceilings and a real-life sixties caravan to spice up meetings, with comfy cushions and cozy vintage furniture.
Situated in the Southern part of Amsterdam, each floor of the office has typically Dutch elements - whether it is the carrier cycle reception desk, the Stroopwafel (waffle made from two thin layers of baked batter with a caramel-like syrup filling) ceiling panels, Gingerbread wall covering or the Delft Blue graphics in the restaurant.
D/DOCK adhered to Google's healthy material list by using non-toxic materials only and designed with a focus on energy and water consumption.
