Apple’s swish new headquarters, Apple Park, will be fully opened at the end of this year. Designed by Lord Norman Foster, it has been dubbed The Spaceship due to its flying saucer shape. Once completed, there will be space for more than 12,000 staff and 14,200 parking spaces.
Inside the doughnut shaped structure of Apple Park is a garden, which offers some respite from being stuck behind a desk. At around 360m in diameter, it is wide enough to accommodate several football pitches.

In Duncan Sinfield’s clip, we are treated to a unique view of Apple’s new HQ. Instead of the fuzzy aerial view seen at the top of this piece, we get a better feel of their building. Plans were made in 2006, which led to the purchase of properties in the office’s vicinity. In 2011, Steve Jobs said shortly before his death ”We have a shot, at building the best office building in the world.”
For your very eyes, enjoy this four and a half minute clip of Apple’s new HQ.
