The Entrance and Reception Area
The entrance and reception area of Google’s new office in Amsterdam is beautifully quirk! When you enter those areas, be ready to see the stunningly constructed faux brick walls that pave your way to the entrance and reception desk. A touch of Dutch royal family was not left behind here. As you come to the areas, you can see an emblem of the royal family’s coat on the reception desk. Moreover, Amsterdam’s cyclist-centric culture was also involved in the reception desk construction. A bike, separated into the front and back parts, were attached to the reception desk.
This giant company really deserves a giant space for its office, enabling it to have its own auditorium. This auditorium, although not a very big one, has the capacity of 70 people. This area is complemented with graffiti walls, cardboard box lights, container wall, and exposed ceilings that make this room cozy to work together with many people.
