The Edge, world’s most sustainable office building

Deloitte's new corporate headquarters, named The Edge, is designed by London-based PLP Architecture and is located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This 40,000 square meter grade A office building by employing innovative smart technology, has achieved a landmark in the world of sustainable building by scoring the highest BREEAM rating ever, a score of 98.36%.

The work space is organized around a grand 15-storey atrium, a window animated by office activity, circulation bridges and lift cores. The base of the atrium is activated by a restaurant, a café, exhibition spaces and conference facilities. The atrium is the lung of the building, ventilating the office space. The shape of the building allows north light into 60% of the offices.

The construction was started in Jan 2012 and finished in 2014.
