The Challenge

We were tasked with driving awareness of the suite of Google consumer lifestyle focused apps and ensuring that the services and products are humanised in a way that excites lifestyle influencers.

Google House

We took Google out of the lab and into the home by creating the world’s first Google House. Each room had a different theme from a range of lifestyle areas like cooking, travel, fashion and gaming. Leveraging the space, we immersed media in key apps. For example, online chefs Sorted used Voice Search to find recipes and cook a meal; Google Glass was used to share fashion tips; Chromcast was used to turn the lounge into a cinema; Transit was used in the basement to show underground commuting options.
