2Amsterdam will breathe new life into two office blocks in the heart of Zuidas, known as the Twin Towers. A multifunctional 24/7 purpose will be designated to the buildings, which perfectly matches Amsterdam Zuidas’s ambitions. 2Amsterdam will have a semi-public garden, public lobbies, flexible workspaces, premium quality office space, top restaurants and a four-star hotel with a sky bar.
The goal of 2Amsterdam’s design is to clearly demonstrate that the twin towers have different purposes but still form a single unit. The facades – made entirely of glass – give the buildings stylish matching uniforms and the identical ground floors also unify the towers. The western tower will accommodate the hotel, with three extra storeys to be constructed on top of the existing tower and a sky bar at the top that offers an unrestricted view of the city. The eastern tower will accommodate office space. A large atrium will ensure daylight reaches deep into the building and the enclosed outdoor area will accommodate an intimate company garden featuring luxurious greenery, which offers an escape from the urban hustle and bustle of Zuidas.
Commerz Real Investmentgesellschaft (CRI), the leaseholder of the Twin Towers, has signed a redevelopment contract with Provast to perform the renovation and expansion work. In accordance with this contract, Provast will execute the redevelopment work in the capacity of delegated construction supervisor. KCAP Architects & Planners created the definitive design, while J.P. van Eesteren was contracted for the engineering and execution of the project.
The office block will receive the BREEAM Excellent certificate and the hotel is striving for a score of 6 on the GPR sustainability scale, which assesses the themes of energy, environment, health, user quality and future value.
