Design Inspiration: Skype’s North American Headquarters

This week’s inspiration post might be especially insightful for seniors who are studying workplace design in their INT464 studio class this semester. The office of Skype’s North American Headquarters is located in Palo Alto, California, and it is comprised of 54,000 square feet, which serves approximately 250 employees. According to Design Blitz, the campus demonstrates Skype’s “spirit of innovation in a highly functional yet creative workplace designed to encourage interaction and spontaneity, as well as meet specific acoustic requirements in support of their extensive use of AV.”

In addition, the project also received LEED Silver Certification, making the space innovative both inside and out with its energy efficiency and high tech atmosphere. Check out photos below:
