Dubbed the world’s greenest office, The Edge in Amsterdam is a triumph in design and engineering. Possibly the world’s smartest office block, its “digital ceilings” are embedded with 28,000 sensors, which measure temperature, light, motion and humidity. Even the security guard is a robot!

The futuristic building, designed by London-based architects PLP Architecture, is primarily occupied by consultancy firm Deloitte. A series of specially developed apps allows workers to create the perfect working environment, by adjusting lighting, temperature, and blinds from their desk. These preferences are recorded, and the app tweaks your environment accordingly as you move around the building.

Sustainability is a key element of this ultra-efficient development. The Edge uses 70 per cent less energy than the average office block.

Workers can manage their schedule, book meeting rooms, and even order up a dinner recipe and have a fresh bag of ingredients ready to collect at the end of the day. Hi-tech espresso machines remember exactly how each worker likes their coffee, and wireless phone chargers guarantee they’re never caught out with no battery.

It isn’t only the office space that’s been engineered to maximise efficiency. In line with the het nieuwe werken – or ‘new way of working’ – concept, there are only 1,000 desks for 2,500 workers. The aim is to encourage ‘hot desking’, and to break away from fixed work stations, while encouraging flexible ways of thinking.
