The Google Dublin European HQ is a thriving inner city campus consisting of 4 buildings located in the heart of Dublin’s historic docklands district. The challenge for the architects was to find a smart solution for the nearly impossible – to create a stimulating and interactive campus within a bustling environment in the midst of the inner city.

Apart from innovative office spaces, the Masterplan required a successful organization of a multitude of additional functions, such as 5 restaurants, 42 micro kitchens and communication hubs, game rooms, fitness center, pool, wellness areas, conference, learning & development center, tech stops, over 400 informal and formal meeting rooms and phone booths, etc. All these additional functions are part of the holistic work philosophy of Google, encouraging a balanced, healthy work environment and enabling as much interaction and communication between the Googlers as possible.

In order to achieve these important goals, the locations of all functions were very carefully balanced between the different floors and buildings. In addition, a bridge was built to connect the different buildings together, encouraging an easy flow for people from over 50 nationalities.

The Google Docks is the main campus building where each of the 14 floors represents the unique identity and strong values of Google. For instance, the floor SEARCH is dedicated to finding any information as a fast, seamless experience. The APPINESS floor is dedicated to the popular Google Apps, whereas the @HOME floor is dedicated to Google’s aspiration of giving its users the feeling of being at home.

Essential parts of the office concept on each floor are the communication hubs, serving as the main driver for interaction and communication, which are essential for creativity and innovation.

Google Docks received LEED ‘Platinum’ certification: The first LEED ‘Platinum’ certification in Ireland.
