Interesting picture. The roof-top lights make the cabin look so high-tech. The windows look high-tech too. It looks like a very long hallway with the seats taken away, but with them on, it'll look very cramped, especially with all the passengers on board. Thank you for sharing this amazing image with us.

Why do they need so many overhead bins on a BBJ ?

Good question. I could be wrong but it looks like those bins are shallower than normal. On a typical commercial 787 wouldn't they come out further to meet where the aisle usually is? Thats usually 3 seats in from the window and these definitely don't reach that far. Maybe they figured these shallow bins just take up space which would normally be wasted?

Also I can't decide if the inside of this jet looks bigger or smaller without all the seats and bulkheads. I think the usual seats and bulkheads give these cabins the appearance of stretching on forever, but without any obstructions it looks kind of small.

It's a stock photo without seats. The press release is quite clear: BBJs are delivered without interior to a completion center.

Even the ceiling with lighting is likely not included because a customer will likely want something else.

They probably used the photo to give an idea of how much space a customer has to imagine their own custom interior. A true VIP BBJ (not one that functions as a charter plane from time to time) doesn't have overhead storage, but often closets for the owner to store baggage, etc in. They want an "open and expansive" ceiling which overhead baggage storage would conflict with.
