Nvidia announces plans for their new Santa Clara HQ
Roshan Ashraf Shaikh / 4 years ago
Nvidia planned that the company will be building a new campus across across the street from the old one in Santa Clara. Looks like Nvidia is doing extreme well to announce this new plan as since Nvidia is considering this as a “birthday gift” to itself” as the company was found 20 years ago this month.
What’s also more interesting is the shape of the buildings. The architect on this project is handled by Hao Ko from Gensler.
The phase 1 consists of office space with labs and support functions along with parking for 1,800 vehicles. Phase 2 consists of 500,000 square foot office where Nvidia didn’t reveal any plans as of now, but the construction of Phase 1 will begin by June 2013 and should be completed to be used by July 2015.
Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said,”Together, we’ve created something wonderful. The design harmonizes smart functionality and a shape that connects with and inspires our employees – a triangle, the fundamental building block of computer graphics. Efficient in every way, the design is thoughtful in its use of space, energy, and environment, and, of course, cost. Its vast open floors will facilitate our cross-functional work. The nature of building our products requires experts from multiple disciplines to come together, and this building is designed above all for collaboration. I am thrilled to present NVIDIA’s new headquarters. You’ll see how it fuses together smart design, craftsmanship, and soul. It’s hard to find a better definition of NVIDIA.”
