Menlo Park, California
Over the past five years, Instagram ramped up from true startup to social media juggernaut with more than 1,000 employees — all to support their 700 million monthly active users. Moving from a space that was one floor to their own three-building campus represents a milestone in their growth. Their headquarters in Menlo Park, California feels like a real-life version of the app. With a focus on providing an Instagram-like space as a tool for connectivity, the design becomes a clean canvas for employees and users alike to express themselves and celebrate their communities. Working closely with the co-founders, brand, product design and community teams, Gensler brought Instagram's simple, crafted design aesthetic, team-oriented environment and vibrant, creative community to life.
