eBay has introduced the new 20,000-square-foot Main Street hub at its San Jose campus, aiming to bring the scale of the brand’s platform to life through large-scale, interactive displays and media installations. Serving as eBay’s new front door, the concept “immerses eBay employees and visitors in the excitement of the company,” says Edwin Schlossberg, founder and principal of ESI Design, which crafted the environment.

A 15-foot touchscreen wall sits at the center of Main Street, welcoming users to tap into the eBay marketplace. Main Street’s entry is lined with ten-foot-tall LED columns, leading to a reception area outfitted with two interactive touchscreens encouraging employees and guests to explore the company’s offerings in a more intimate fashion. Distinctive glass walls afford open views and ample natural light.

Spanning 7,150 square feet, Main Street’s main hall will host broadcasts of large meetings, conferences, and other programming with an open mezzanine to accommodate larger audiences. The massive multiscreen display will serve as the focal point of the venue, airing both programming as well as colorful ambient videos and eBay-related trends when not in use.

The design also includes three high-tech executive conference rooms, an outdoor terrace and patio, a coffee bar, and a small merchandise store.
