In 2018, Google is set to begin construction on its new headquarters in London and Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

After announcing plans for British headquarters in London in 2013, Google has finally released visual designs for the soon-to-be built 11-storey hub. Set to begin construction next year, the offices — which will be located near the city's King Cross railway station — will come complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, terraced garden roofs, an achingly cool cafe, gym, athletic centre, pool and a retail space, thanks to British designer Thomas Heatherwick and Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels' BIG firm. 

The 92,000sqm space will also reflect the technology giant's advanced vision with designs that include interchangeable elements and solar blinds. Also, in a move to be more eco-friendly, plans showcase that the building will only have four car parking spaces but than 650 bike stations. 

While no further news has been released on Google's new London headquarters, see how Google celebrated legendary architect Zaha Hadid with its Doodle of the Day.
