When it came time to renovate creative software powerhouse Adobe’s headquarters in San Jose, it was abundantly clear that creativity and color would be central to the renovation. The firm tapped Gensler for the artful 143,000-square-foot redesign that’s sensitive to the environment and pays homage to the San Jose community. An artistic approach was applied throughout the building that’s furnished with locally made decor, emphasizes open and collaborative working environments, and offers a dazzling array of perks. Completed last year, Adobe’s newly renovated headquarters features new open workspaces, gathering areas, outdoor work areas, creative conference rooms, and amenities. The building houses 2,500 employees who have access to impressive perks that include a free onsite wellness center with fitness classes, meditation room, massage area, numerous and diverse eating options, on-site auto maintenance, dry cleaning, bicycle repair and rental, and open workspaces that embrace the indoor-outdoor experience. Natural light, outdoor access, and indoor greenery like the community garden and green wall highlight healthy working environments. Related: Adobe’s 410 Townsend is a Collaborative LEED Silver Office in San Francisco Adobe, which moved its headquarters to San Jose in 1994, is now the largest tech firm in the downtown core. To celebrate the community and the city’s agricultural past, the Adobe headquarters is decorated with locally made rugs, furniture, and decor. The building’s Palettes cafe takes inspiration from the region’s orchard history with its green design and A-shaped art installation built of locally sourced orchard crates. Bright splashes of color and art installation point to the firm’s creative and innovative spirit. + Gensler Via ArchDaily Images © Emily Hagopian Photography

Photographer pays tribute to his dog in heart-wrenching movie

Comments Off on Photographer pays tribute to his dog in heart-wrenching movie

Denali from FELT SOUL MEDIA on Vimeo . When Ben Moon met Denali he was a rescue dog who was fun to hang out with. Little did Moon know that he would be his best friend and companion through thick and thin. Denali came with Moon on many trips across the country and throughout the world as Moon did his work as a photographer. When Moon was diagnosed with cancer, Denali rarely left his side–even in the hospital. And when it was revealed that Ben would have to “poop into a plastic bag” for the rest of his life, Denali (the movie is spoken from his perspective) felt bad for him, mostly because “Ben already had to pick up my poop in a plastic bag.” When it became clear that Denali was getting ready to leave the world himself, Moon decided to take him on a vagabond trip and visit all of the places they loved to go. Moon asked Denali to let him know when it was time for him to go. Denali did and died over a year ago. Moon’s photos and this film are his tribute to his friend . Try not to cry.
