Interiors of Microsoft’s Building

{[['']]}
Building 4 in Redmond, Washington, is home to the Microsoft campus where the firm's office innovation team was challenged with the question of how offices will work and appear in 15 years time. The task of determining what an office in the future would look like resulted in the Building 4 prototype, designed by Studio O+A and Microsoft, to contain an entire working community of thinkers, doers, makers and innovators.

Embracing Microsoft's extensive history in the Pacific Northwest, décor inspiration has been taken from the wooded surroundings, and Seattle's background of grunge-era fashions, comprising a plethora of blue denim and heavy plaid. The familiar checkered patterns and bold hues are seen playfully cladding the interior of the building, blown up across large expanses of wall and floor treatments, adding interest, humor and warmth to the huge 59,000sq ft workplace.
