ING HQ – Cedar | Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Sustainability. Flexibility. Connectivity. The Netherlands’ largest bank occupies the building of the future 🇳🇱

ING’s HQ (“Cedar”) brings new life to Amsterdam’s innovation district by connecting buildings, users & visitors in a super sustainable, human-centric design. 

In this #buildinghero, we spotlight the heroes that went above and beyond to make it happen. Cedar won BREEAM Outstanding (93.7%) 🏆 thanks to:

🏢 Recycled & repurposed construction material used from the demolished previous structure, along with circular concrete & FSC-certified wood.

☀️ Energy-efficient installations, canopies & triple-glazed windows, as well as 2,150 solar panels on the roof & an additional 3,600 on a nearby solar field, making it energy-positive.

🚘 Smart tech optimising building usage efficiency, flexible workspaces with natural sunlight & 50% of parking suitable for EV charging.
