Adobe made the right call in hiring Chicago/Palo Alto-based firm Valerio Dewalt Train Associates to design its new offices in San Francisco. The open floor plans, bright colors, and social spaces foster an environment of creativity, energy, and excitement. The design firm offset work areas with group hang-out centers: a living room with a TV, a kitchen with bar seats and tables, and other areas for socializing. The brick and wood infrastructure is complemented by vibrant blues, deep lavenders, and airbrushed steel. All in all, the swanky new space screams, "Step aside Google."
