Visiting the GooglePlex

I recently visited the GooglePlex in Mountain View CA. Here are some of the pictures I took (with my Samsung Galaxy S2). I highly recommend a visit if your’e in the area. You will find a little gift shop at the GooglePlex if you like to pick up some Google gear.

Some facts about the GooglePlex:

  • Originally occupied by Silicon Graphics (SGI).
  • Four main buildings, totalling 47,038 square meters (506,310 sq ft).
  • The SGI facilities were leased by Google beginning in 2003. A redesign of the interiors was completed by Clive Wilkinson Architects in 2005. In June 2006, Google purchased some of Silicon Graphics’ properties, including the GooglePlex, for $319 million.
  • Since 2007 the site has featured a series of solar panels covering the rooftops of eight buildings and two solar carports, and capable of producing 1.6 megawatts of electricity.
