Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research DIFFER, Eindhoven

For DIFFER – the home of researchers of nuclear fusion and solar fuels – Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed the first Laboratory building in the Netherlands to be awarded a BREEAM Excellent certificate. The façade design was based on the orientation to the sun, resulting in a transparent north façade, a sawtooth profile on the east and west façades and canopies on the south façade. Internally, the building is arranged around the two large experimental workshops, encouraging encounters between users through smart visual connections and attractively designed communal spaces. The restaurant on the upper floor provides access to the intimate, green roof terrace.
