ABN AMRO Amstelveen

02 juni 2018

In the heart of Amstelveen, we recently had the honour of developing and realising an out-of-the-box lighting plan for ABN AMRO’s new and impressive office building.

The emphasis in this sustainable office building is on sustainability. Throughout the entire office building you will find elements with a story. When you walk into the office you will find a doormat made of recycled PET bottles and yarn of fishing nets from Urk. The floor materials are also recycled and come from various gymnasiums and exercise halls in the Netherlands. In addition, there is a beautiful wooden wall which is made of recycled pallet wood. In short, the origin of the materials has been deliberately considered and the office is given a sustainable label.

What have we done

In the entrance we have installed led profiles between the wooden rails in the wooden framed ceiling. These provide the entrance hall, the seats and the counter with optimal working light. Above the stairs, the atrium, the workplaces and lounges we have used sustainable suspended lamps from Secto Design. These pendant lights are made of PEFC-certified birch trees from Finland. This worldwide quality mark shows that Secto considers sustainability of paramount importance.

Throughout the entire office building there are suspended ceiling islands made of Texel wool. These islands are each equipped with 3 energy efficient recessed downlights.

To highlight a number of lively garden walls we have used sustainable trackspots. These spots are made of recycled aluminum and equipped with an energy efficient LED chip.
