Mozilla’s new space in Mountain View at¬†331 E Evelyn Avenue is developing at an exciting rate! 110 days of demolition, reconstruction and reorganization started on August 12. We are aiming for a February 2014 move-in date.
The new space is being designed around employee feedback, with an emphasis on workspace useability. Acoustic privacy around individual work spaces, as well as more conference rooms with Vidyo will make the MV2014 a haven for individual as well as collaborative projects.
Further updates are posted at the MV2014 Evelyn Avenue mana page

- Updated plans (1st & 2nd floors + outdoor site plan) have also been posted to the mana page.
You’ve heard by now. Our Mountain View Headquarters are moving to a bigger, better space early in 2014. WPR is already planning this momentous move, and is making sure you’re in the loop along the way.
The MV2014 project kicked off this month with a meeting on 3/12 in MV & on Air Mozilla¬† where employees learned about our plans for the new Mountain View site at 331 E Evelyn St in Mountain View. Employee feedback is helping us improve and enhance our future working environments in Mountain View and elsewhere.¬† The goal of these efforts is to ensure full transparency and include Mozillians in the planning and design process.¬† WPR is focused on improving your comfort and productivity in our workspaces.¬† These development efforts are designed to culminate in a smooth move process and a great transition to our new home, MV2014!
Upcoming steps in the design process include:
4)¬†¬†¬†¬† PLANNING & DESIGN
5)¬†¬†¬†¬† PROTOTYPE & TESTING
Through this Engagement process we’re sharing and gathering information in a variety of ways:
Individual online surveys have been sent to our MV & SF offices to gather specific feedback on work styles and preferences and focus groups were held earlier in March to learn about group adjacency and identity needs between our teams at Mozilla.¬† We held an open house event on March 21st, giving Mountain View employees another chance to share their ideas and concerns. You can follow¬† along for updates for at MV Evelyn Ave Design Development.
- March and April:¬† Space Planning and Designing (Idea gathering, several planning versions, discussions)
- May: Develop Construction Documentation (full details down to each square foot of this new 60,000 sq ft space)
- June: 30 day RFP process for hiring a general contractor
