Although Apple Park has been nominally complete for months, only a tiny number of people in the world have seen inside. The tech monolith doesn’t extend invitations to outsiders often, leaving the $5 billion structure a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a Lord Norman Foster design.

Then, Co.Design had a simple but brilliant idea this week: Apple has begun moving employees into the building, and Apple employees are on Instagram. What are the odds that they could resist showing off the new digs?

Most of the images posted are just of the visitor’s center, but a few Apple workers and more privileged visitors have been polishing their social media cred with some tantalizing glimpses of other bits of the state-of-the-next-art Cupertino facility. (Do check out the iPad menus in the cafeteria!)

From the inside, the circular wonder looks an awful lot like all of Apple’s other products, truth be told, albeit on a scale never before conceived. Here’s a few glimpses at that immaculateness of that conception, as seen through the apps of the people who have been there:
