The late Steve Jobs dazzled the tech and architecture worlds when he first unveiled exterior renderings of Apple’s circular future headquarters. Now the first images have been leaked of what the spaceship-like building will look like on the inside.
9to5Mac has posted a series of renderings that include interior images of the 2.8-million-square-foot building, which will be one mile in circumference. The images reveal vast interior spaces, a walkway overlooking the central courtyard and towering plate-glass windows around the exterior looking out onto the lush grounds of the campus where 33,000 employees will be located when it opens in 2015.
The building’s striking design, created by London architecture firm Foster + Partners, was personally overseen by Jobs, who presented the proposal to the Cupertino City Council in his last public appearance before his death in October 2011. 9to5Mac previously posted a trove of AppleSaucer images from the city council presentation.
