Apple has grown so big that they are running out of space. After showing iPhone users a middle finger- the company decides to build a new Headquarter building to complement their campus at One Infinite Loop. If you think of this to be the clear reason for them to be building a new HQ, you are likely mistaken. There is a lot more that you are almost clueless about.
The Apple Campus 2 is being referred to by many as a "Spaceship" due to its saucer-like design. With a promise of launching every future product there, Steve Jobs has one clear aim: to create the best place to work in the entire world.
From being announced in 2011, the building has seen a lot of changes over the duration of four years at Cupertino California. While we are waiting to have a complete insight of the flying saucer, let's just wish Steve Jobs has all his dreams come true.
Here are the plentiful reasons that will leave you to astound with why Steve Jobs wanted to build a campus as big as the team is getting.
Norma Foster uttered these words saying that it was the biggest moment of his life hearing Steve Jobs. He says, "he wants to be considered a part of the team and not the client."
Jobs wanted the new landscapes to reflect the Californian Landscapes from his childhood. Foster claimed this in the video giving an insight to the Campus 2.
The Spaceship building will house more than 12,000 employees. The main building has 2.8 million sq. feet floor space with a circumference of one mile.
Dave Muffly, Apple's Senior Arborist, revealed in the video that they aim to bring a lot of greenery back to Cupertino.
His inspiration gave shape to the circular design of the building with glass walls that will give a picturesque view of the greenery to the employees.
The plants selected to be planted can adapt to climate change. They have selected a thousand plants that are drought tolerant and plants that consume little water to irrigate.
There will be 7,000 trees ranging more in Oaks because they are well adapted to dry climate.
The campus will run on 100% renewable energy, including solar power and biofuels. There will be 700,000 sq. feet solar panels on campus as well as the on-site low-carbon central plant.
According to a report from the San Jose Mercury News mentioning that more than 157,000 gallons of water will flow to the campus daily. The water will be used for the green landscaping, cooling, and natural ventilation. You will also be surprised to know that the building will be able to stay cool without using air conditions for almost 75% of the year.
Looks like you've ended up knowing everything about your dream destination.
We wish that the promise of all 2017 launches will fulfill at this magnificent place.
We've got a deadline: 2017.
