From orphaned building to sustainable jewel: the Amsterdam Zuidas business district can boast a new eye-catching building: the office of Goede Doelen Loterijen, the parent company of the Dutch charity lotteries. Over 500 employees of Nationale Postcode Loterij, VriendenLoterij and BankGiro Loterij moved into the new building in 2018. VolkerWessels subsidiary HOMIJ is responsible for the building’s technical installations.

Green innovations

A roof made of leaves that collects rainwater and generates solar energy is the showpiece of the renovated building but is just one of the many sustainable choices made in its design. After all, the objective is to achieve the highest possible sustainability label: BREAAM-NL Outstanding. The sustainable innovations include energy-generating windows by PowerWindows and the mushroom-based natural insulation product MycoFoam. Once fully operational, the building’s energy consumption will be 80% lower than a new-build office building and its carbon emissions 150 tonnes lower.

A new lease of life

Goede Doelen Loterijen made a conscious choice to ‘recycle’ a building that was standing empty. “Mainly because of the huge environmental gain,” explained managing director Marieke van Schaik. “This project shows how you can build in a climate-friendly way.” In addition the charities want the renovated office to give something back to the city. The new head office will be open to the public and offer features including a café and restaurant, an auditorium and TV studio. Marieke: “We really want to share this building.”
