Almost a month after Apple had unveiled the scale model of the Foster + Partners-designed curved glass Apple headquarters in Cupertino, new renders of the final HQ plan have been uncovered by wired. Apple Campus 2, which was approved by city officials last month, will sit on a plot of 176-acres of land, accommodating approximately 12,000 employees within the south bay city of 60,000 people.

Included in the plan is a 260, 128 m2 office, research and development building, 1000-seat auditorium, 27,870 m2 research facilities, and a generating plant that will serve as the campus’ primary source of electricity. The net-zero architectural development has been conceived as an environmentally-aware scheme, which will increase the existing landscape on the site by 350%.
