Renderings Highlight Interior of Apple's Upcoming 'Spaceship' Campus




Last month, the City of Cupertino gave what amounted to the final approvals needed for Apple to begin work on its massive new "Apple Campus 2" on the site of a former HP campus in the city. As part of the application process, Apple has shared a few renderings of the project over the last several years and has even built a model of the entire campus, which includes a large ring-shaped main building and a number of other facilities.

Around the time of the city's final approval, we pointed to a video posted by the City of Cupertino covering the three-hour October 1 meeting where Apple's Environmental Impact Report was discussed ahead, with the session including a brief overview video by Apple and a presentation led by Apple's Senior Director of Real Estate and Facilities Dan Whisenhunt.

Cafeteria
Whisenhunt shared a number of new renderings of the campus as part of his presentation, and late last month Apple Gazette posted a number of low-quality screenshots from the session video showing the renderings. But now Wired has obtained a full set of higher-quality images that offer a much better look at the interior of the campus.

Lobby of auditorium building
Quote:
In these images, we see for the first time the space port-like entrance to the development's subterranean parking lot, a cavernous cafeteria that spills into the grassy landscape beyond, and the glass pavilion that will serve as the entrance to Apple's new underground auditorium -- a secure lair where press will gather for future product launches. In short, these documents give us the most complete picture of Apple's new home yet, a campus that Steve Jobs himself thought had a shot at being "the best office building in the world."
Parking garage
The full set of renderings is available at Wired.

Very futuristic, I like the green along the parking garage. Hopefully my future lab will be there...

I like how they added Tim Cook in the second picture, pondering the precise curvature of the screen to be used in the next iPhone - Nice touch.

Edit: forgot sarcasm tag - /s.

Genius Bar in the cafeteria just in case you drop your iPhone and crack the glass while walking down the stairs.

Has Apple said who is staying at One Infinite Loop and who is moving to this new building?

Does Apple have enough cash to bail out the government yet?

Better still, Apple should just form their own country, secede, and purchase states one at a time from the government. United States of Apple.

That unprotected concrete divider in the parking garage is an accident waiting to happen.

Wow. Only Apple can pull something this amazing off. (Hopefully), I'll be out there in a few years...

They should put posters of this up in all Apple stores to make the people exchanging 7 iPads think twice.

The additional pictures over at wired are very nice. I like that they are planting Apple trees inside the mother ship. I am guessing Macintosh Apples.

Apparently this would be the only way to do a campus after Samsung do it.

cafeteria is terrible. why not have plants everywhere? Also reverb, echo will be a big issue. Having conversations at lunch will be difficult due to massive reverberation. That induces stress.

You do realize that this is a rendering, not a photo.

It looks a tad bit too sterile for my taste. Hopefully the real life version is a bit more inviting.
