From the start, Adobe wanted the workplace to be an experience for their employees. The goal was to make the workplace a reflection of the employees' inspired selves, being a source of motivation in the process.
The location was chosen due to the population centers, public transit, and easy exposure to the interstate.
The rapt studio wanted to integrate the brand’s values and stated that there was more to do than just slap a few logos on the walls. Once again, creativity and innovation were integrated, as well as an open environment for employees to connect.

The complex has 4100m2 of office space available to Adobe. In total there are 3 floors allocated to Adobe, two of which are exclusively working spaces.
An important part of the design is the social spaces created to promote collaboration and conversations amongst different groups.
The center is equipped with top-notch technology. There are large screens that show the latest Adobe software, an interactive mosaic wall, and iPad operating systems scattered around the floors to book meeting rooms.
The overall design is an inspiration by both classic and contemporary materials. The goal was to reflect the industrial nature of the base build. Nonetheless, the more colorful attribute of Adobe is integrated as well.
