High quality level of working and living on a top location

In Amsterdam’s rapidly growing business district, the Zuidas, on Beethoven Street, two unique towers and a series of six town houses are being developed combining housing, working, leisure and parking facilities.

Arup helps raising the bar to a high quality level of living and working in a sustainable way, offering building services design, vertical transportation design, fire engineering and the sustainability concept.

BREEAM-nl Excellent

The design of the offices aims for the energy label 'BREEAM-nl Excellent'. Following Amsterdam's guidelines the houses will be executed ‘half carbon neutral’.

The buildings have Long Term Energy Storage (LTES). The water system is designed in a way that water is preserved through the toilets and taps.

The lighting uses minimal energy by combining a specific fixture and a lighting regulation system, based on daylighting and absence detection of the user. A high quality façade guarantees insolation and limited sun hindrance.

Identities united

With an identity of their own, the two blocks, designed by Claus & Kaan Architects (500 Beethovenstraat) and UNStudio (400 Beethovenstraat), will be united on this special location. 

The programme includes approximately 200 parking lots, 2,100mapartments, 20,000m2 office space and 1,000m2 commodities.
