Apple Campus 2 High-res Renderings.

Written by Thomas Baekdal | Saturday, August 13, 2011

Apple is planning to build a new headquarter in Cupertino, and Apple only do big things. The new building is shaped like a great circle, nick-named the space ship. It has a whopping 2.8 million square feet of space.

It will include a fitness center, a huge cafe, a corporate auditorium seating 1,000 people, include the biggest single parking area in the city and they will even build their own power plant. The facility is planned to house 13,000 employees.

And if that wasn't enough, Apple also plan to build 300,000 square feet worth of research facilities.

But the size of the building isn't the most impressive element. It is that Apple plan to turn the entire area into one huge green park. They will be tearing down the old area with 130.4 acres of buildings and 42.6 acres of "green ares" and instead flip it around so that 130.1 acres will be "green areas" and only 42.9 acres will be covered with buildings.

You can find the architectural specifications in these PDFs: Introduction, Site Plan & Landscaping, Floor Plans and Renderings.
