EDGE – Amsterdam West | Amsterdam, Netherlands

A stunning new building has arrived in the heart of Amsterdam West, pushing the limits of cutting-EDGE sustainable design in real estate 🌿

Upon acquiring the 1970’s building in 2012, EDGE embarked on a major redevelopment project to transform the site into a leading examplar of carbon neutrality. By significantly improving upon the building’s design and energy efficiency, EDGE Amsterdam West is set to achieve both BREEAM Official Outstanding along with WELL Platinum 🏆

Aside from its beautiful 3,000 sqm atrium, biophilic designs and other architectural achievements by de Architekten Cie., the building features a host of smart technologies and IoT integration – for example, allowing tenants to use a smart app for workplace customisation. But what makes it one of the most sustainable office buildings in the continent?

🏗️ Implementation of circularity, such as the re-use of removed façade elements as well as a portion of the existing concrete structure having been integrated in each stage of the redevelopment.

☀️ Equipped with over 6,000 sqm of solar panels and underground thermal energy storage, EDGE Amsterdam West is an energy positive development. The total energy demand is projected to be far below the total operational energy threshold needed to comply with the Paris Agreement.

Amsterdam just got a whole lot more beautiful (and sustainable)!
