ABN AMRO head office
With a height of 105 m the ABN AMRO head office is one of the 10 tallest buildings in Amsterdam. The building was completed and inaugurated in 1999. At the end of November 2020, ABN-AMRO announced that the bank will largely leave the building in 2024. Most departments will be moved to the old ABN headquarters on Foppingadreef in Amsterdamse Poort. The building on the Zuidas will be sold, after which a part will be rented back to accommodate the general management. On December 7, 2021, it was announced that the building had been sold for €765m to Victory Group.

The new ABN AMRO pavilion Circl is open during the Open Tower Day. The pavilion is the first practical example of sustainable and circular design. The main idea is that the impact of building infringes as little as possible on the world’s resources. The circular economy is waste-free and resilient and that is exactly the idea behind the pavilion. The building with wood as the main material is located on the Gustav Mahlerplein on the Zuidas in front of the bank’s main building. What is striking is the large glass front that gives an open appearance. The public can use the wide stairs on the side of the pavilion. The stairs lead to a public place where both passers-by and employees can meet.
The roof is covered with earth and grass and therefore contributes to biodiversity. Inside the building there is more than 2,000 m2 of meeting and work space, but there is also a space for the so-called ‘living lab’, where the latest innovations, which seem promising but have not yet proven their value, are applied and tested. For example, part of the facade has been made suitable for the use of new materials in collaboration with TU Delft, so that it can be examined whether there are even more sustainable applications.
Circl is accessible for the disabled. Visit is at your own risk.
Circl is freely accessible between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Inside, employees are ready to answer all your questions. You may have to wait for some time when it is busy.
