Have you heard about the Zooglers? Hm? These are actually the lucky pepople that work at Google EMEA Engineering Hub, in Zürich. An inspiring and contemporary space, where a team of Zooglers were part of the design process and created a special identity for each room inside the building.
The Camenzind Evolution were the architects behind the main ideias and concept. They made a survey with all people, and they decided to reduce their own workspaces in order to gain a funny and relax enviroment focused on the common and meeting areas. A team of local Zooglers were teamed up as a comitee to represent the entire office and present the ideias to the architects.
The diversity of all the spaces provides a great range of emotional and visual experiences. A lot of colors, textures, materials, activities, quick connections between floors, and other crazy sttuffs create a unique and at the same time very different place. You can check out more about that on the pictures bellow and realize why Google is a place where everyone would like to work at!

"The resulting design is a distinctive, diverse, light and flexible workspace, wich has been specifically developed to stimulate and support the Googlers in their challenging and innovative work" - Camenzind Evolution
"This building is a 'city' and like in every city there are areas where people live and communal areas where people can meet with a network of roads and connections between them." - Camenzind Evolution
