The Edge

The Edge

Application: Offices & Public Buildings

The Edge, PLP Architect’s new 40,000m² office for Deloitte in Amsterdam, is the world’s most sustainable office building having been awarded the highest rating ever recorded by the Building Research Establishment (BRE). Through the use of smart technology The Edge achieved a BREEAM certification of ‘Outstanding’ and a score of 98.36%.

The building is located at the Amsterdam business district of Zuidas and has a negative estimated energy use through its design to maximise sunlight and use of sustainable heating technology.

The beautifully designed atrium is the heart of the building. Here, along the entire façade, Jaga Mini DBE radiators have been arranged to combat the heat loss which occurs with large glass facades and thus create a comfortable working environment without obstructing the view.
