Tech Company

Sunnyvale, CA

A tech company's new Sunnyvale campus is the company’s first South Bay campus and represents a significant growth in its Bay Area presence. The tech company expects it to be one of its largest campuses with a capacity of over 5,000 employees. Sunnyvale 102 is the first building to be completed at this new campus. The building shares a common approach to their other workplaces, but it also reinterprets their workplace program and provides an identity fitting for its context and users. Referencing the neighboring NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Gravity Cafe is a servery, kitchen, and multi-purpose dining space that is programmed for the majority of the first floor. The first-floor location allows dining to spill out onto adjacent outdoor patios. The space marries the explorative spirit of NASA with Facebook’s hacker culture. The classic NASA space program badges inspired the bold typography and crisp graphics such as curved orbit lines that add movement to the walls and floors. These graphics paired with concrete floors, plywood accents, and open cielings. As the largest social space, the eatery is intended as a space for employees to connect with one another, reflecting Facebook’s mission to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.”
