Status: In Progress GROWx Vertical Farm provides solutions to two of our challenges: one is to grow vegetables locally in an urban environment; the second is to maximize the sustainable food production. Urban consumers have become rapidly more conscious about the origins for their food. Demand for local, tasty, fresh and safe food is growing, while the urbanisation trend requires a more sustainable value chain. Billions of people live in urban areas and this number is growing exponentially. Supplying a city of one million people demands billions of meals annually. GROWx is designing, implementing and operating a vertical farm in Amsterdam. The area is located in Amsterdam Bijmer Arena and the building complex is a 1400 m2 warehouse. AKKA has been called to design the whole space, in collaboration with the vertical farming technicians. The building will be a combination of offices, meeting rooms, collaborative spaces and a showroom. Our focus is to create a space where GROWx employees can interact with visitors and potential clients without their work flow getting disturbed.
