Park 20|20

Park 20|20 is the first full service Cradle to Cradle working environment in the Netherlands and is situated in Haarlemmermeer. In Park 20|20 a unique level of sustainability is created together with a human centred design approach to realise the cleanest, most inspiring and productive working environment to date. Sustainability is achieved through implementation of the Cradle to Cradle philosophy (C2C) as introduced by American architect William McDonough and German chemist Michael Braungart. C2C strives to create closed cycles for materials, energy, waste and water. By taking a human centred design approach every aspect of Park 20|20 is geared to energise and empower employees through inspiring ergonomic architecture and techniques, integrated landscaping and a high level of facilities to accommodate the combination of professional and private life. Continuing research is underway to ensure that all measures result in improved productivity. Park 20|20 will radically change and improve the way individuals and organisations work and will set forth it’s users as leaders and promoters of sustainability and employers of choice. The increased productivity and energy savings will have a positive influence on company results. Welcome to Park 20|20. For more information...

Park21

The Municipality of Haarlemmermeer is currently developing Park21. Some one thousand hectares of land between Hoofddorp and Nieuw-Vennep, in the middle of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, is being developed into a large multi-faceted recreational area. Park21 is designed to cater to the needs of visitors from both within and beyond the region, day in, day out, throughout the seasons. Wildlife, recreation, relaxation, events, sights, tourist attractions and culture. The park offers the commercial market the opportunity to hold appointments, presentations and meetings in countryside surroundings, as well as a complementary programme of leisure, and reflective and adventure activities. Park21’s polder, park and leisure components therefore represent a vast range of moods. It offers both tranquillity and dynamism, but also vastness and seclusion. And we can lend the area international stature by means of a varied range of projects. Returning a little closer to home, however: the area is accessible to nine million inhabitants within the space of an hour. For more information...
