Life Science Cluster David de Wied

At the Utrecht Science Park, Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed a new, significant extension to and renovation of the existing David de Wied building. The new, complex extension consists of the ‘EM square’ and will house the new sensitive electron microscopes for the research groups of Bijvoet Centre and the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The high-quality, low vibration laboratories (VC_G and VC_D) enable the researchers to perform top research in the field of Life Sciences. In addition, the original building, designed by Herman Hertzberger Architectural Office, will be adapted with more flexible laboratories and office spaces. Moving the main entrance to the ground floor will create an improved entrance and provide a larger communal heart on the first floor of the atrium.
