MKDA took a flexible approach to Heineken [1]‘s newly-renovated corporate headquarters in order to create a better sense of community. We especially like the lobby walls inlaid with Heineken bottles [1], don’t you? In addition to an influx of natural lighting and energy-star appliances [6] that drastically reduce the company’s electrical load, a lot of the materials used were comprised of both pre- and post-consumer recycled content.

Combined with the LEED-EB Gold [7] certification previously awarded to their 12-story, 384,000 square foot tower, Heineken is definitely turning into a lean, green machine!
