Adobe Systems is a leading computer software company focused on the creation of multimedia products and internet application development. OTJ Architects was retained to lead the renovation and expansion of the organization’s Washington, DC offices and deliver an environment that would mirror Adobe’s vibrant brand persona.

Our designers engaged in a deeply collaborative process with Adobe team members located across North America, leveraging the capabilities of the client’s own software platforms to accelerate the exchange of information. This insight into the organization’s products and culture allowed us to develop technology and spatial solutions uniquely suited to support Adobe’s operations. Accordingly, the renovated workplace features a divisible training center complete with moveable partitions that allow for rapid reconfiguration, state-of-the-art audio visual systems, as well as contemporary pantries that invite staff to gather and connect.

Our partnership with Adobe’s team extended to the joint development of a bold graphics package designed to reference both signature brand elements and the office’s Washington location. In addition, we translated Adobe’s iconic logo into a custom living garden wall hung in one of the renovated pantry areas. This focal piece serves as a subtle reminder of this progressive company’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and employee well-being. Adobe’s renovation addresses sensitive security concerns inherent to this office’s government-related work without compromising the project’s aesthetic value or hindering collaboration. The result is a dynamic, branded workplace where individuals excel and business thrives.
