For over a decade, HLW has provided Google with design services that push the boundaries and establish new precedents for ultramodern, human-centric workplaces. In addition to Google’s three-million-square-foot, Northeast regional headquarters in Manhattan, we have designed numerous smaller offices, creative production suites, and laboratories. We’ve also had a hand in designing the amenity spaces that Google has become renowned for, including wellness and fitness studios, healthful cafeterias, and inspiring outdoor spaces. Through this rich relationship, we have learned how to grow and innovate within a context of rapidly developing technology, workplace norms, and design aesthetics.
