EDGE Olympic is a reinvention of the modern workplace. Driving sustainability, innovation and well-being. The first in a new generation of smart buildings. It is the perfect example of user-centered design.
The 12,367 square meter redevelopment is located in Amsterdam’s South Axis. The flexible (co-working) spaces offer tailor-made solutions to all types of tenants and users. EDGE Olympic is founded on EDGE Technologies holistic four-pillar approach: well-being, sustainability, design and technology.
EDGE Olympic is designed from the ground up, based on a low-impact environmental perspective. Our focused sustainable strategy enables the building to contribute to an innovative environmental approach and the shift to the circular economy. Avoiding the usual wasteful demolition caused by redevelopment. Instead, reusing existing materials, introducing circular products and systems and implementing sustainable and VOC-Free materials. This has led to EDGE Olympic being energy neutral on city level, a BREEAM Excellent certificate and according to the circularity indicator of Madaster one of the highest circularity scores.
People-centric is reflected in the open ecosystem design. Creating a living environment that stimulates unexpected interactions. The digital infrastructure connects everyone and everything in a single cloud platform. Allowing extra services and a continuously updated system. EDGE Olympic is the first Dutch project to be officially certified WELL Platinum. Our aim is to continually optimize the health and well-being (engagement, productivity, happiness) of all tenants and users. By measuring biological fundamentals, but also by careful functional programming and design.
