Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) isn’t just working hard to deliver ultra-advanced products for its customers, but it is also trying to be a pioneer in other areas. This may explain why they’re developing a futuristic new base for the comfort of their employees. Apple’s Spaceship campus or Apple Campus 2 is a new model for the 21st century workplace. After all, the rumors and consistent online chatter about the proposed new headquarters (which the late Steve Jobs equated to a spaceship), the project has received unanimous approval from the Cupertino City Council, and construction is now set to begin.

The Mothership

The campus is an integrated, unified and secure creation that is designed for research, collaboration and innovation. The project is set to break ground in 2014, being completed in 2016. The plans consist of close to 3.5 million square feet of office space, 10,500 parking space, a fitness center, as well as a 1,000-seat auditorium.

Apple Inc Spaceship Campus

The main building, which is four stories high and ring-shaped, will contain 2.8 million square feet of space and accommodate 12,000 of the 16,000 Apple employees in and around Cupertino.

The majority of the 176 acres will be occupied by greenery, but the jewel of the campus will be the glimmering ring of polished metal and glass.

Though the donut-shaped building is the star attraction, it is not the only place to find Apple employees. There will be a small cluster of luxurious buildings on the southern edge that is reserved for its Research and Development department.

Apple Amenities

The design of the campus is intended to promote collaboration and creativity. The building’s secure landscape extends and connects the interior workspaces with the outdoors, enabling relaxation, reflection and recreation in an effort to spur invention of Apple’s next generation of products.

Apple is building the campus with specific objectives:

  • Promote employees productivity by providing superior quality on site amenities
  • Provide a venue for the Worldwide introduction of new products
  • Create a campus that is in line with Apple’s business and design practices

For employees, a single security point on the west edge of the site will be the point of entry, which diverts those lucky few into a futuristic tunnel with a subterranean service road, which leads to a two-level parking garage underneath the building.

Employees without cars will take advantage of the Apple shuttle buses. These drop you off at the eastern edge of the site in what is known as the Corporate Transit Center, a walkway flanked by two Apple-white staircases leading you into the mothership itself.

Apple workers will have access to a 90,000-square-foot cafeteria, in which they will be able to stroll in and out of the ring to an orchard with a cluster of apple and apricot trees.

The facility is just as cutting edge as the gadgets Apple makes and will run entirely on renewable energy. Its power will rely mostly on rooftop photovoltaic arrays as well as on-site fuel cell plants.

There’s no doubt the vision and design of this project will create a truly beautiful, peaceful place to work and create, and for $5 billion you’d expect no less.
