NVIDIA today announced that the company will be building a new campus right across the street from the old one in Santa Clara, California! The new NVIDIA building looks impressive and the architect on the project is Hao Ko from Gensler. The new NVIDIA corporate headquarters will be done in two phases. Phase 1 of the project will be comprised primarily of office space with a complement of labs and other support functions, including associated parking for 1,800 autos. The office building will be added to NVIDIA’s existing 12-building, one million square-foot campus in Santa Clara, located directly on the other side of San Tomas Expressway. Phase 2 would include a second 500,000 square-foot office building, but there is currently no timetable for construction. Phase 1 is scheduled to begin in June 2013 and should be ready for occupancy in July 2015. No word on the price tag, but keep on buying NVIDIA products to help them fund the new HQ!
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.
