Architectural Components Group (ACGI) recently completed a multi-million dollar project at Apple's new "Spaceship" campus, named Apple Park. Apple Park will eventually house more than 12,000 employees, who will move to the campus over a period of six months.

Recently, Apple allowed Wired Magazine to tour the completed building. Since then, the first photos have emerged of the new micro-perforated wood pods, which were agonized over for years by Steve Jobs himself and Foster + Partners - the lead architect. 

The project consumed a significant amount of time in the last two years of Jobs life. He was extremelly specific with what he wanted:

At one point, Behling recalls, Jobs discussed the walls he had in mind for the offices: “He knew exactly what timber he wanted, but not just ‘I like oak’ or ‘I like maple.’ He knew it had to be quarter-­cut. It had to be cut in the winter, ideally in January, to have the least amount of sap and sugar content. We were all sitting there, architects with gray hair, going, ‘Holy shit!’
