Foster + Partners' Apple HQ gets go-ahead

  • Comment

Foster + Partners’ new HQ for technology giant Apple is set to become a reality after receiving planning permission earlier this week

Cupertino City Council on Tuesday (15 October) unanimously voted to approve construction of the Apple Campus 2 research and development facility in California.

The building has been designed by Foster + Partners, with Olin as landscape architect and Arup as engineer. Images show a glass ring surrounded by trees.

Documents submitted to the council by Apple last month said the firm behind the iPad and the iPhone proposed to create ‘an integrated, unified and secure 21st Century campus’.

They added: ‘This new development will provide a serene environment reflecting Apple’s brand values of innovation, ease of use and beauty.

‘The entire 176-acre site will be redeveloped with sustainable, state-of-the-art office, research and development facilities.

‘The project replaces the current disjointed assemblage of aging corporate facilities with a single high performance office, research and development building, with supporting facilities.’

Apple said the main building would hold 12,000 employees over four storeys.

Other amenities on the campus will include a restaurant, a fitness centre and an auditorium.
