Apple Park, the company's new headquarters in Cupertino, CA, was completed last year. With a circular, futuristic design that's instantly recognizable, it's often called the "spaceship." The public rarely gets to see inside the building, though, and visitors are only allowed in a certain areas.

But an August video from YouTuber Yongsung Kim, recently spotted by The Loop executive editor Dave Mark, gives the rest of us a chance to see inside Apple's famed headquarters.

The headquarters was completed in 2018 and cost Apple $5 billion. There's a visitors center and store for tourists looking to check out the campus where can buy official Apple apparel and merchandise only available to purchase there.

Steve Jobs Theater, a circular building next to the "spaceship" portion of the campus, offers 360-degree views thanks to its circular, all-glass walls. Once inside, a marble staircase leads to an underground auditorium, and at least once a year press are invited inside to see the next Apple products announced.

The large, donut-shaped ring of Apple Park is the main building where some 12,000 Apple employees work. The campus is also eco-friendly, blurring the line between indoors and outdoors with four-story glass windows, large orchards that supply fruit for the cafeterias, and solar panels on the roof.
