Google recently opened their doors to the newest 500,000 square feet office space in the heart of Midtown Atlanta - with two of Synergi's stairs front and center. Twenty local artists were asked to collaborate and create artwork, making each of the 19 floors an ode to Atlanta’s cultural, musical and artistic history.

A Love Letter To Atlanta

The company reveal in a blog post, ” Inspired by the city’s legacy for social change, our office was designed as an homage to the people of Atlanta, with each floor an ode to Atlanta’s cultural, musical and artistic history.”

Walking into the impressive working space, you’re greeted by a giant heart installation, with that iconic Google logo given a contemporary makeover for A-Town. However, it’s all not just flash and show. A lot of thought and detail went into the office space. 20 local artists were asked to collaborate and create artwork. And there’s even charitable initiatives in place, with Google making it a priority to work with local companies to help make Atlanta a better place for everyone. They have teamed up with the Mayor and the Atlanta BeltLine to launch the Atlanta BeltLine Marketplace, an project set to help local Black, Latino and women-owned small businesses reach new customers by retrofitting rail cars into retail space, on our iconic looping trail of the city.

The on-site coffeehouse and cafeteria is even an homage to the first Black-owned and programmed U.S. radio station, called The WERD Cafe.
