First pictures of the new headquarters of Google worth $ 1.6 billion


Currently, the network has the first images of the new headquarters of Google in London. Not so long ago, the search giant has bought land worth $ 1 billion and contracted with the architectural firm Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), which will develop the design of the new London residence Google.

Like most modern buildings, new home search giant will certify the level of “outstanding” from BREEAM (one of the best known and most common methods for assessing the environmental performance of buildings.) The design of the headquarters of the panel will be applied transverse wooden beams and a steel frame, which is very unusual for such a large structure.

The new headquarters of Google in London will be located near the metro station Kings Cross St Pancras – London Underground interchange hub in Camden County, which brings together the six station lines into one, thus being the largest underground transportation hub. The first floor of the new headquarters will be presented almost entirely restaurants, cafes and shops. As for green space, they assigned a place on the roof.

The headquarters will occupy almost entirely one of the sides of the new street called the Royal Promenade. In the future, Google plans to turn the King’s Cross area into an international center of business and culture – so to speak in the city. If the project is approved by the local authorities, the construction work on the new headquarters will be completed as early as 2017.
