“We chose the TopBrewer for all of the tea points as it is designed with collaboration in mind and fits well with the ethos of the ‘third space’. The minimal appearance means that it can be integrated into a central island without looking out of place, allowing users to gather around the coffee machine and socialise in a relaxed, informal environment.” Mark Bell, Site Operations Manager at Adobe
TopBrewer enables collaboration in the ‘third space’ at Adobe White Collar Factory office
Global technology firm, Adobe has recently moved to the cutting-edge White Collar Factory development and into a stunning new home. The new EMEA Headquarters, designed by Gensler, aims to foster collaboration and agile working, whilst intrinsically resonating Adobe’s strong creative brand.
Adobe occupy the 7th, 8th and 13th floor of the 16-storey building which is located in London’s Tech City district on the ‘Silicon Roundabout’. The building boasts a wide range of desirable features including; panoramic views across London, natural light and ventilation, a roof terrace and an impressive 150m running track.
The impressive 45,000 sq ft workspace – fitted by COMO – offers a mixture of open plan areas, meeting rooms and a new dedicated customer experience centre.
An important element of the design was the introduction of ‘third spaces’ – designed to encourage spontaneous collaboration and social interaction. Within these spaces, TopBrewer coffee machines are installed in the kitchen areas as an enabler of chance conversations and to provide premium refreshment facilities.
Adobe’s Site Operations Manager, Mark Bell explains:
“The provision of interactive social spaces was key to creating collision zones in the office. The tea points are strategically placed in the centre of the space to encourage accidental interactions and promote collaboration.”
He adds: “We chose the TopBrewer for all of the tea points as it is designed with collaboration in mind and fits well with the ethos of the ‘third space’. The minimal appearance means that it can be integrated into a central island without looking out of place, allowing users to gather around the coffee machine and socialise in a relaxed, informal environment.”
With premium coffee consistently ranking high, and often top, on the list of preferred office perks, TopBrewer is perfectly positioned to deliver a first-class coffee experience in the workplace. At Adobe, seven TopBrewer Pro Series are programmed to serve a range of specialty barista-quality beverages, as well as filtered still & sparkling water – all controlled via iPad for an interactive personalised user experience.
Simon Bracken, Managing Director & Co-Founder of Scanomat UK & Ireland comments:
“Adobe’s new office in the White Collar Factory is one of the most advanced workspaces I have seen and has set the bar extremely high for future office design. For me, it ticks all the boxes in terms of the employee experience, technology, wellbeing and collaboration. It has been a great project to work on and we are pleased to provide TopBrewer’s throughout.”
