High Tech Campus Eindhoven is a sustainable and ecologically intelligent working environment.
High Tech Campus Eindhoven is a 103 hectare sustainable and ecologically intelligent working environment. The initiative of Philips Electronics has transformed the former Natlab-area, an introverted business park, into a landscape that forms part of the city. The masterplan, which was designed by Inbo/JHK and Juurlink&Geluk, is based on the qualities and characteristics of the Brabant landscape. It forms a sustainable ground layer for the new building development, which is situated below rows of oak trees, the heath landscape, the woods and the Dommel valley with its exceptional micro-environment. To create space the cars are stacked in multi-storey car parks covered with green facades and new nature has been created and integrated into a high-quality working environment.
Open innovation is all about collaboration, a single-firm solution is a thing of the past. The Campus atmosphere of openness and the concentration of high-end knowledge and facilities produced considerable interaction between the researchers. Knowledge sharing and mutual inspiration generated a definite boost for the innovative capacity of the organisation. The campus encourages interaction and teamwork, and this is also reflected in its architecture: transparent open structures and open workplaces. The beating heart of the Campus is The Strip. All social facilities are brought together in this 400-metre-long building. The Strip is the centre for meetings, inspiration and creativity.
High Tech Campus Eindhoven reflects Philips’ focus on sustainable and environmentally friendly entrepreneurship. The Campus has invested more than 50 million euros in measures for energy and CO2 reduction.
