Mercury News obtained photos of a scale model of Apple’s new spaceship campus during an interview with Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer and Director of Real Estate Dan Whisenhunt on the project.
The model fills an entire room inside a high-security workshop located on the site of the new campus.
“You see the energy and the love and the attention to detail that we’ve put into this,” said Oppenheimer. “We have treated this project just as we would any Apple product. And this will be a place for the most creative and collaborative teams in the industry to innovate for decades to come.”
“The concept of the building is collaboration and fluidity. It’ll provide a very open-spaced system, so that at one point in the day you may be in offices on one side of the circle and find yourself on the other side later that day.”
“This will be one of the most environmentally sustainable developments on this scale anywhere in the world,” added Whisenhunt. “A building like this will use 30 percent less energy than a typical corporate building in the Valley. And that’s 100-percent renewable energy, which is unheard of on this scale, with most of it produced on-site.”
The Cupertino, California planning commission has approved Apple’s plans for its new ‘spaceship’ headquarters paving the way for a vote by the Cupertino city council on October 15 and a final vote on May 19.
