Gensler works on Facebook’s new London office

Facebook is set to open a new office in London’s Covent Garden, with architect and interiors consultancy Gensler working on office designs.

Gensler is refurbishing a 3600m2 space in a listed building for the social media giant, which is set to move into the space in early 2012.

Gensler says its brief is to ‘recreate the signature global Facebook brand’ in the interiors work.

A spokeswoman for the consultancy says this is the first time Gensler has worked for Facebook in Europe, although it has previously worked on US projects for the brand.

Facebook also has a London office on Carnaby Street.
