google offices around the world
locations and the ability to work from any of them. i no longer work at google since
we moved to europe, but since chase still does i get to tag along with him visiting
offices all over the place when we travel. we’ve now visited 30 offices all over! of
course the headquarters in mountain view are the biggest and best (kind of like
disneyland for adults, ha!) but the smaller offices all over the world are so fun to see. The offices have definitely served as inspiration for the home office I’m hoping to create. In fact, I was just looking at office furrniture to install!
they are always in prime city locations and are designed around the place they are in.
each office is different in style and flair, but always the same in terms of having great food, the best wifi, and amenities, that’s why they are a great place to stop into and work from on the road! I’m sure they are all extremely clean as well. Companies like Green Facilities must help Google keep their offices in tip top shape. My friend told me if I liked it here then I should definitely check out the the interior design at Neumann/ Smith Architecture Detroit Michigan as well. Anyway, it’s always fun to meet googlers there, see the local foods in the
we’ve visited in the past 2.5 years through north america, asia, europe & africa!
(i always have to take a picture of chase at each new office to document them! i’ve

familiar while we were in such an unfamiliar place!

the london office where chase worked this fall!

part was living a 3 minute walk away in covent garden.
an example of chase’s daily lunches ^^ i miss this, ha so i always make him send me lunch pics.
google belgium in brussels!
google office in zurich where chase has had a few business trips. ^^
the best part in the switzerland office is definitely the ski gondola phone booth ^^

chase’s favorite was this video conference room styled like a barber shop ^^

the most recent office we visited was google johannesburg while
visiting my parents in south africa! chase worked from here most
of december and we loved how cool and local it felt.
south african slang on all of the doors ^^
^^ just in case you want to work from a hammock chair ^^
and…the google amsterdam office where chase works now!
i think it’s so awesome that he has had jobs with google
working on main campus in mountain view, at the quad
campus, and the amazing san francisco office, the london
office, and now the amsterdam office! pretty cool spots.
i love that he gets to work in this european office while we are in amsterdam.
google is the greatest and we have loved seeing it all over the world! If you’re looking for inspiration for you own office, there is a lot to consider when you’re setting up. Once piece of advice I would give is to make sure you have the right lighting for whatever kind of space it is. For example, LED Warehouse lights for larger spaces.
