The three prime design techniques make the building appear delicate and genteel. The facade has an interplay of aluminum fins, silver metal panels, and deep overhangs. There are punched openings carved against the metal panels, painted the color of terracotta. The curtain wall system uses smart glass to ensure an airy and bright environment for the users.

In addition, the smart glass can also be controlled manually from wall-mounted switches,  or from a mobile device.The interior is designed to blur the lines between the work areas and areas for social recreation. With a focus on movement and creating collaborative spaces, the interiors of the Netflix headquarters uses warm colors and varied textures. The double height l...
