Historic hangar converted to Google office

A historic aircraft hangar in Los Angeles has been converted to Google’s latest workplace, in a design by ZGF Architects. The giant, seven-storey hangar in Playa Vista was built in 1943 to house the Spruce Goose, the iconic flying boat. The design of the original hangar has been preserved, while creating a modern workspace for Google and YouTube employees through the building’s adaptive reuse.
