Google HQ King’s Cross KGX1
Google's new London headquarters building/King’s Cross Campus development KGX1 site sits between King's Cross Station and the King's Boulevard in London N1.
The purpose-built 11-storey building comprises more than 1m square feet of space. The building, designed by Heatherwick Studio and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) will feature a natural theme where all materials are sourced through Google’s healthy materials programme.
The office floors will accommodate 4,500 employees, gym and pool, a multi-use games area, an Events Centre and staff training facilities. At roof level, landscaped terraces and a walking 'Trim Track' will provide outdoor amenity and recreation space for office workers and their visitors.
The Events Centre will be on the first and second floors, and Town Halls, four smaller event spaces on the ground floor. These spaces, along with foyers, pre-function and support spaces, are all connected by stairs and a lift so that they can operate independently, or together to host a single event.
The Zone A Building will include two levels of basement. The basement areas, which include disabled car parking (4 bays) for the office functions (no on-site parking is provided for retail use) and loading areas for servicing the office and retail space will be accessed via an existing vehicular access ramp from Goods Way, which connects up to the existing Shared Service Yard, which services King’s Cross Station.
