Microsoft India recently shared pictures of their newly done-up Microsoft India Development Center (IDC) in Noida and it has taken the internet by storm.
The 90,000 square feet office has been designed keeping in mind the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world.
The structure is a unique amalgamation of the latest Microsoft technologies and locally sourced materials.
The beautiful and detailed artwork by local artisans and graphics inspired by India’s rich cultural heritage adds to the aesthetics of the office.
Created by stonemasons and carpenters, the work is a tribute to India’s historical and rich craftsmanship.
The workstation has Taj Mahal-inspired marble domes, arches, vaulted doorways and jaali work, which reflects the Mughal style of architecture.
Ivory white and light hues of beige dominate the colour scheme.
“Recognising the strategic importance of establishing Microsoft engineering presence in Noida, my team went over and beyond in ensuring that our first engineering hub in Noida truly represents Microsoft Design Language infused with local culture and inheritance,” said Riku Pentikäinen, Regional Director, Asia Real Estates Operations.
He further adds that the team overdid themselves, and the newly opened Noida office is one of the most beautiful Microsoft workspaces.
The office will have team members from business, cloud and enterprise, artificial intelligence, core services, and the gaming division.
The Noida workspace is the tech giant’s third office in India after Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
