Where is Adobe Inc. Headquarters Located?
The Adobe headquarters is an impressive structure composed of three high-rise towers. It is located at 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, California 95110-2704. The office towers, namely the West Tower, East Tower, and Almaden Tower were completed in 1996, 1998, and 2003, respectively.
Each of the towers occupies a huge lot, with the 18-floor West Tower having the biggest space with 391,000 square feet, followed by the 16-floor East Tower with 325,000 square feet. The smallest of the three is Almaden Tower (17 floors) with 273,000 square feet.
In total, the Adobe World Headquarters covers around one million square feet of ground including office spaces and parking facilities. Its parking area is composed of five floors.
The World Headquarters was designed by the firm Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum (HOK), with architects George Francis Hellmuth, George Edward Kassabaum, and Gyo Frederick Obata, in collaboration with Webcor Builders, Inc.
The three-tower headquarters was always meant to be eco-friendly because it is not only right for the environment, but also the business. However, more efforts toward environmental friendliness were done in 2001 during the California energy crisis when the company pushed toward energy conservation.
The company reached this goal as it received various certifications with the help of facilities management company Cushman & Wakefield.
Some of its achievements include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR label, the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, and the USBGC’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Existing Building (LEED-EB) Platinum certification.

How Adobe’s Modern Headquarters in San Jose Looks Like
The company implements modern, eco-friendly operations in its World Headquarters in San Jose, California. It combined technology and principle to create a green building that encourages conservation, productivity, and creativity.
Inside, the buildings are designed to inspire innovation and imagination. It takes on two architectural motifs namely the California Coastal and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
This is why the interiors of the offices bear blue, green, and brown colors. Visitors will find various graphic designs on walls and artwork installations within the premises that are consistent with the abovementioned themes.
The company enlisted the help of artists Hannah Sitzer and Erik Otto to paint different depictions of the themes on each floor of the high-rise offices. One remarkable work by Otto is the Santa Cruz Mountains mural, which features the California coasts at the backdrop of the mountains. It uses mixed materials to capture the essence of the two geographical features, creating a dynamic design that reflects the principles of the company.
On the other hand, Sitzer created multiple pieces in different mediums which, when combined, create an inspiring masterpiece. It features the iconic Santa Cruz sunset teeming with warm colors over cool hues, thanks to the coast. It is aptly titled Homage to Santa Cruz, which aims to capture the artist’s memory of the place.
The choice of these themes is not random. This means to convey the fact that while Adobe is a worldwide brand with locations around the globe, it remains to be relevant in its local context, pertaining to the California geographical features and iconic sceneries.
In a way this creates an inspiring environment where arts and sciences can meet. In the same vein, the offices also provide space where creatives, engineers, and other staff members can meet with the help of interactive spaces.
The offices are full of places that foster a collaborative culture, from open-plan workplaces, breakout areas, collaboration rooms, lounges, and cafeterias. Even spaces like corridors and elevator areas are filled with artistically designed interiors, with the help of the design team, as well as Otto and Sitzer. The result is an innovative and lively company culture, which the headquarters location and design contribute to.

I am one of the chairs of a workshop on Historical Image Processing (HIP 2023), being held in conjunction with the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR 2023), which is being held in August 2023 in San Jose, California, just a block or two from the Adobe World Headquarters.
Our workshop always has an excursion to a place of interest with respect to historical documents or image processing. In the past, we have sometimes gone to libraries or museums.
With the Adobe World Headquarters so close by, I wondered if there might be anything to see at the Adobe building that would be of interest to this group, and if someone at Adobe would be willing to give the group a tour? This would be during the first half of the day on Friday, August 25, 2023.
