The design of parking garages rarely captures the imagination. But a dash-cam video of a parking facility at Apple’s spaceship campus will likely prompt a few ooh’s and ahh’s from design fans.

The three-and-a-half-minute video shot by a Lyft driver is worthy of narration from Apple design guru Johnny Ive and has all the hallmarks of a well-made Apple device: attractive simplicity, clean lines, and functional flow.

Ever since construction began in 2013 of Apple’s new ring-shaped headquarters, flyover videos made with drones have populated YouTube to show the progress over every little landscape and building detail.

Most of us will never set foot inside the 2.8 million-square-foot Apple Park, but the parking garage video, shot by DurangoLyft and first published over the weekend by The Apple Post, at least gives us a glimpse at the range of vehicles driven by Apple employees.

The shape of Apple HQ is not the only reason it is dubbed the spaceship. Entering the parking garage feels like a space fighter’s return to the mothership.

There are traffic lights that provide a sense of scale: a lot of people work there and so the beginning and end of work days probably need a little traffic control.
