Samsung Electronics has just opened up a swanky new office in the epicenter of the Western tech world – Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is home to a number of familiar names in the industry, including Apple, Facebook, Intel and Google.
Samsung first set up camp in Silicon Valley more than 30 years ago, and its new office is on the same corner as its first campus in the neighborhood. The new campus will house 700 employees, but there is enough capacity to reach 2,000 members of staff in the 1.1 million square feet of space.
The facility is built from a number of two-story buildings stacked on top of each other, which reaches 170 feet high. There are also garden spaces, a peaceful courtyard and a modern food court for staff. If you would like a little look around the inside, check out the selection of pictures below.
The campus will unify a number of company offices that have previously been scattered around Silicon Valley. The company’s components business will primarily be moving into the office, where employees will focus on research and development in semiconductors, LEDs and displays. Sales, marketing and other support staff will also be located at the site.
By unifying its development teams under one roof, Samsung is hoping to improve communication between divisions and spur on a little extra innovation and creativity.
