Gallery Of New Google Zurich Office

The Google employees in Z├╝rich, Switzerland, moved to a new building, and Flickr user Tiptoe between April 2007 and January 2008 shot what seem to be a couple of photos from within. These rooms have some familiar Google office design elements, though some of them look a bit more old-fashioned than the ones of other offices, while others look even more futuristic/ odd/ cultish than usual (I think some new age sect waiting for UFO landings would instantly feel at home).

Graffiti on the wall.

If I read the pic right, both the bookshelf and the fireplace in this library room are fake.

This may be a meeting room (with banana on top).

The kitchen.

An egg on astroturf.

The label to the left identifies this as an Igloo Satellite Cabin, though the photographer calls it a “bathysphere.”

The “therapy zone” offers free stress tests and audits to help you advance to the level of Operating Thetan massages.

The chill out zone.
