Google Orange County Headquarters

Google was the last piece of the puzzle, so we came in and solved it by designing a LEED Platinum creative office that cost less and transformed the neighborhood.
The construction carried an even deeper impact, however: The search engine behemoth’s OC Headquarters was the last element to close the undefined space of the existing IMPAC Center campus, a collection of office buildings and a freestanding restaurant. Loosely organized on a vehicular approach, the area fell prey to awkward geometries, limited pedestrian social interaction and underutilized space. IMPAC needed a plaza make over, and it needed one quickly without exceeding budget. Our solution? We designed the architectural language of the Headquarters to be a cohesive addition to the existing campus, successfully molding a central public green space. Both inviting and functional, the new building and radical design of the plaza provides an opportunity for the business community to increase interactivity.

“Westgroup Designs saved us over $1.5m in construction costs while fast-track delivering a 130,000 sf, LEED-Platinum office building…but more importantly, the building allowed us to keep Google as our valued tenant. None of the other firms we worked with before could commit to doing that on our time-table and budget.” - Scholle Development and Dorn-Platz Co.
