    Let's work better

    The work environment is changing rapidly. Technology and personalization are bringing new opportunities and challenges to how workspaces are designed and managed, to employees’ working habits, health and wellbeing, to personal control of the office environment, and to the work-life balance.


    The Smart Buildings hub is all about sharing insights from industry- leading developers, designers, building owners and their blue- chip occupants. Everything you need to know to keep pace with this fast-moving sector and create a happier, more productive workplace.

    Babette Bouman on future trends in the workplace, filmed at The Edge, Amsterdam for Philips Lighting

    I think the future of the office will be more about meeting and talking to people and collaborating."

    - Babette Bouman, Architect, Fokkema & Partners

    Let's make the world better


    Enabling this change is the Smart Building. Intelligent and responsive, it integrates the latest developments in the Internet of Things and always-on communications to deliver data-driven insights that increase productivity, enhance occupant happiness and well-being, improve sustainability, and optimize service delivery and operations.


    Along with highly efficient LED-based connected lighting systems, innovative materials and circular approaches to construction and renovation position the Smart Building sector as an important component of global net zero energy and carbon-neutral initiatives. These initiatives are key to alleviating the severest effects of climate change.
