The first hybrid-timber building at the Zuidas
Offices today are not what they once used to be. The CubeHouse is a next-generation office building, designed to inspire, connect and accelerate tomorrow’s working world. Our three-dimensional approach creates spaces where visitors, businesses and nature can thrive, proving that sometimes the best things come from thinking inside the box.
Unwilling to settle for just excelling in one area, The CubeHouse pushes the envelope on every front. As the very first hybrid timber building of the Zuidas, well-connected to all parts of the city and publicly accessible, it truly ticks all the boxes. Add to this a vibrant entrance, lively rooftop gardens, integrated breathe spaces and stunning views and there you have it: a future-proof office building, empowering users to reach their full potential day after day.

The Cube (public plinth):
Rated ‘excellent’ according to the BREEAM standards, The CubeHouse scores very high as a sustainably built environment. Being BREEAM Excellent certified, means we work towards a holistic approach to achieve ESG (Environmental, Social and Governmental factor), health and net zero goals.
The CubeHouse is built using 75% reclaimed and/ or biobased materials for the structure, mainly timber. Biobased materials consist entirely of natural products, with the exclusion of fossil raw materials. About 13,000 m3 of sustainable timber will be used for The CubeHouse. This volume of timber will store up to 9,000 ton of CO2: this is as much as the emissions from the electricity consumption of 10,271 households in 1 year!
The CubeHouse has an MPG score (rating environmental performance of buildings) of 0.595. This means that the building meets the embodied carbon objective of Paris Proof: material-related emissions according to DGBC calculation protocol amount to 110 kg CO2-eq per m2 GFA.
A grey water reuse system is a great way to reduce water waste and promote sustainability. The water crates on the roof surfaces collect up to 175 m3 of water. This water is then, for example, used to flush the toilets.
To promote the health and well-being of the building’s tenants, The CubeHouse is designed with the WELL Building standard in mind. The shell is Well Gold-certified. This means that the users and visitors quality of life is at the top of our agenda.
The publicly accessible rooftop garden adds lush greenery to a rather petrified Zuidas. Here, tenants and visitors can enjoy lunch outdoors, surrounded by a variety of flora and fauna. Apart from boosting employees’ work pleasure and well-being, the rooftop garden ensures coolness when needed and store large amounts of water (after heavy rain fall). This combination of greenery and water storage, means that The CubeHouse will be a climate-adaptive office complex.

Connecting the Amsterdam Zuidas
Only 8 minute travel time to Amsterdam Central
The CubeHouse is designed with the 15-minute City concept in mind. This means that everyone should have access to essential urban services within a 15-minute walk or bike ride. Thanks to its location at the heart of the Zuidas, The CubeHouse is perfectly connected. It will only take you 2 minutes to get to the new Zuidas Station (by foot); 5 minutes to Schiphol International Airport (by train) and 8 minutes to Amsterdam Central Station (by train). Various shops and restaurants in the beating heart of the Zuidas, as well as numerous schools and universities, are just around the corner.
The CubeHouse aligns perfectly with the cities plans for the Zuidasdok. This plan envisions the Zuidas as Amsterdam’s second center, a well-connected, international area where working, living and enjoying life are all interconnected.
