Designing the complete office environment for Deloitte and AKD in the Edge, a remarkable effort was made by Fokkema & Partners to make the interior of the new building with its grand atrium feel welcoming, comfortable, efficient and super sustainable. It now sets a benchmark in office design in terms of quality, sustainability and user comfort.
Work floors are laid out to provide abundant daylight to the work stations. The terraces in the atrium, each with a different function, provide the building with a human scale and make the atrium a fully equipped and usable space that stimulates communication. This is complemented with innovative smart technology, to regulate the climate and light over individual workspaces according to personal preferences. And of course all materials used had to pass the sustainability test.
The Edge was designed by PLP Architecture from London and developed by OVG, working in close partnership with Deloitte and AKD. The multi-tenant office building achieved a BREEAM qualification of ‘outstanding’, with a score of 98,36 percent, making it the most sustainable office building worldwide recorded by the Building Research Establishment (BRE), the global assessor of sustainable buildings.
