Designed by British architect giant Foster + Partners, the interior space is organised into a series of pods that provide open work spaces, complete with customisable seating.

The soundproof indoor spaces are furnished with custom pieces by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa.

The Apple design team will be settling on the fourth floor of the building, alongside the executive suits.

“Intended as a focal point in the building, the cafeteria occupies an atrium spanning the full height of the structure. Giant glass doors open on both sides to aid ventilation, and columns are clad in brushed aluminium that nods to the aesthetic of the company’s products,” design magazine, Dezeen writes.

It was revealed earlier this year that Apple campus’ ‘freestanding carbon-fibre roof’  has been manufactured in Dubai by Dubai Investment Park-based Premier Composite Technologies.

In 2013, Foster + Partners introduced some changes to the original design of the building to help reduce the ballooning costs of the building.

During a Business Conference hosted by Wired magazine, Norman Foster said that he if he had a second chance, he would have tried to push a more future-oriented approach to the underground garage of the Campus.
