If you ever pass by Microsft’s new office in Nodia and feel like you are at Taj Mahal, don’t be surprised. Because you technically are.
While most of us continue to work from home, Microsoft has inaugurated its new India Development Centre (IDC) facility in Noida taking inspiration from none other than the Taj Mahal.
While the office technically is a workspace, but ask a photoholic and they would tell you what this place can exactly be used for other than banging fingers on the keys of the keyboard.
The office space is spread across the top three floors of a six-story building in Noida and its architecture takes cues from Mughal art like jaalis, white marbles, arches, and domed ceilings.
Also, the window-facing office at the building invites sunlight to smear plants, humans and the green textured mat with sunlight, which has to be the little elements that make the architecture special.
Talking about the new office, Rajiv Kumar, managing director, Microsoft IDC, said:
“In order to attract the best talent from the country, you have to go to the places where they are. So, we started in the middle of the country when we opened Hyderabad center, and then went south with the Bengaluru center. My vision to create the Noida center was to attract the best talent that graduates from some of the world-class engineering and management institutions in the country’s north.”
People surely are drooling over the new office and now wish to ‘work from office’:
