Adobe’s Open Workspace Wins “Green” Accolade

Adobe’s newly remodeled open workspace on the 12th floor of our San Jose headquarters’ West Tower was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification for Commercial Interiors at the Platinum level – marking the first space to receive LEED-CI Platinum distinction at Adobe San Jose headquarters. Among the features of the 25,000 square foot open office space is natural light for all workspaces and enhanced energy management, resulting in a 50% reduction in energy use. Wood and glass from the old doors and offices have been recycled into dividers that define one of the many collaboration spaces on the floor. The open floor plan is flexible and improves collaboration, as communication is much easier within teams and across functional groups. Over time, Adobe’s goal is to expand this open, collaborative floor plan to most of its San Jose headquarters as well as other offices worldwide.


The company’s newest LEED Platinum CI certification is Adobe’s 23rd LEED Certification and 17th LEED certification at the Platinum level. I want to extend my congratulations to all who worked on this project.
