Seek Constant Improvement By the Sharing of Knowledge
The Inspiration House cultivates B/S/H’s culture of one brand, one vision, while also maintaining the integrity of each of the five individual brands.
B/S/H/ (Bosch Siemens): The Inspiration House at Park 20|20,
Beukenhorst Zuid, Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
Bosch Siemens Hausgeräte (B/S/H/) brings five of the top brands in household appliances – Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, Neff and Solitaire – together under one roof in the first building completed at Park 20|20, The Netherland’s first Cradle to Cradle-inspired development.
The building exemplifies the latest in sustainable thinking, featuring a full-height, four-story atrium with an indoor/outdoor Living Green Wall and a Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) roof that maximizes energy and daylighting to showrooms that can be converted to offices as needed. High efficiency LED lighting, daylight dimming sensors and rooftop solar panels result in integrated systems that perform 53% above conventional building standards, and are 39% more efficient than current code compliant buildings.
Interior spaces, designed with D/DOCK Amsterdam, encourage occupant well-being through individual user controls, fresh air, sunlight and materials assessments to ensure that safe and healthy products are used throughout the building. Office spaces on the two top floors are designed according to the innovative “new way of working” principle. Each floor features a hub, or central space where all the community functions such as meeting rooms, coffee corners, concentration spots and informal working and meeting areas are clustered.
