Tour the New Offices of Hulu, WeWork, LinkedIn, and Adobe

New, 1 comment

Tech companies are often mocked for building offices that double as glorified playgrounds for their adult employees, with the requisite nap rooms, pinball machines, and plastic slides. However, four of the most recent office designs —for Hulu, Adobe, LinkedIn, and WeWork—show a more restrained approach to workplace style. In each of the new offices, statement light fixtures are more common than toys.

2. Adobe

Adobe
Architects: K2 Space

Square Footage: 9,000
