Google is considering the possibility of opening up a new office space in a Los Angeles airplane hangar owned by Howard Hughes in the 1940s, according to the Wall Street Journal. The building was once used for airplane construction, but was later used as a filming location for movies such as Michael Bay’s recent Transformers and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day.

Aside from film production crews, the 300,000 square-foot building, which is located north of LAX, has been mostly vacant since the 80s. The real estate development firm that currently owns the property has been searching for a company to use it for offices for about four years now, and the unconventional design seems to fit right in with Google’s tastes.

The building is just one of many on the property, but most of the others have already been leased out as office spaces for various companies, inlcuding YouTube.
