Renderings of some of the more minor buildings planned for Apple Campus 2 have been shared by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, giving us a look at the planned design for two visitor reception locations, a set of outdoor eating areas or food stations, and a maintenance shed.

Apple provided the renderings to the City of Cupertino ahead of a planned administrative hearing set to take place tonight, with Apple seeking architectural review for the buildings.

Two reception buildings, one located on Wolfe Road and one located near Tantau Avenue, feature glass walls and are designed to welcome visitors to the campus. The reception buildings look similar to a planned visitor's center, which will include a cafe and a store.

A large, modern-looking "utilitarian" maintenance shed that spans 5,776 square feet will house the equipment needed to maintain the exterior of the campus, which will feature 80 percent green space with drought-resistant plants appropriate for California weather and more than 7,000 trees.

The outdoor eating areas feature a simple design with an indoor kitchen and outward-facing pickup windows, which Apple employees will use to order food that can then be eaten in the outdoor restaurant. The two outdoor eating facilities will be accompanied by a main restaurant inside the ring-shaped building.

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the Cupertino city council has asked for two minor architectural changes: the relocation of a site fence for a better view of the main building from the Tantau Avenue reception building and a redesign of the fencing to make the landscaping more prominent than the fence.

Work on Apple's second campus is well underway, with construction on the main ring-shaped building nearly complete. The company's current progress can be seen in the April drone update video published earlier this month. Apple plans to complete construction on the campus at the end of 2016, with employees set to move in at the beginning of 2017.

You think everything in the shed will be custom made out of a solid piece of whatever and uncompromisingly thin and unapologetically garden related? Or just a s*** hole mess of dirty unorganized tools like our sheds?

I like the reception buildings. The glass reminds me of the centerpiece from one of my favorite films:



I also like the utilitarian shed. My dream home will look something like that (though the center section will rise two more stories).

A visit to Cali is on my bucket list. And for sure I hope to see the new campus and grounds if I'm allowed on a tour!
I have lived in CA for years, and traveled all over the state. As much as I admire Apple's accomplishments, including the incredible wealth I gained as a decades long Apple shareholder, there's far better destination cities than Cupertino.
