Green Dream: YouTube Headquarters

You Tube HQ - Channel LumberThe YouTube headquarters in San Bruno was designed by William McDonough + Partners and Huntsman. Channel Lumber partnered with designers and contractors throughout the development of the campus.

One of the notable green features of the building is a 70,000 square foot rooftop green space featuring native grasses and wildflowers. The roof provides insulation, protection from the elements, rainwater absorption and it dampens sound from the nearby airport.

The campus features an open format loft-like design with lots of informal meeting spaces to encourage impromptu brainstorms. The hallways are lined with white board to capture inspiration.

Late for a meeting downstairs? No problem. The building features a three lane, three story slide to shuttle employees down. And when it is time to take a break employees can play on-site mini golf, frisbee golf or power nap in the Energy Pod, a dark day bed pod with relaxing soundtrack and timer.
