Inspired by the Taj Mahal, the new office of Microsoft at Noida highlights India’s rich craftsmanship. Intricate artwork by local artisans, stunning marble inlays, vaulted doorways, arches, and marble domes created by stonemasons and carpenters are certain uniqueness of the structure.

Curated by the RE&F team and Bengaluru based DSP design Consultants, the six-story building has a workspace that is spread to three floors. Covered in Ivory white and punctuated with jaali work, space reflects the rich architectural work of the Mughal period.

Microsoft Noida office is the third Development Center in India after Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The center will provide opportunities for engineering talent in the areas of Business & Productivity tools, AI, Cloud & Enterprise, Core Services, and the new Gaming division.

Committed to sustainability, Microsoft has implemented energy and water conservation practices to reduce its carbon footprint in the project. The base building is LEED platinum rated which means it caters to the highest sustainability standards of construction and operation.

According to Rajiv Kumar, Managing Director, Microsoft India Research & Development Pvt. Ltd, “The Microsoft NCR workplace represents a critical expansion of our world-class technology talent and exceptional engineering presence in India. Our architectural tribute to the iconic Taj Mahal was made with constant considerations to meet our deep commitment to sustainability and support for local artisans and materials.”
