Royal Philips Electronics HQ, Breitner Centre, Amsterdam


Philips’ management recently completed a move to the Breitner Centre, a new 23-storey headquarters building in the de Omval district of Amsterdam. The new HQ has 560 workplaces including open plan offices, Director’s offices, dining rooms and boardrooms, a staff restaurant and auditorium spaces.

dpa lighting consultants worked closely with SOM Architects on the shell and core areas of the project and with JHK Architects for the office fit-out.

Lighting was carefully integrated into the architectural design of the interior. One of the key aspects our lighting concept was to clearly define the vertical surfaces of the interior spaces, which are an important part of the external expression of the building at night.
