Overview

Relocating from downtown Palo Alto to an eight-and-a-half acre site in Stanford Research Park, Facebook built its expanded offices within two buildings totaling 180,000 square feet.

The project team applied an urban design theme where open-office neighborhoods are connected by streets and boulevards. Key areas, referred to as parks and intersections, tie caf├ęs and informal meeting areas to the overall space. Other urban elements include exposed open ceilings for a raw/industrial appearance, bold carpet patterns, and an array of playful paint colors with graffiti wall art.
