Matrix Innovation Centre is a Science Incubator that offers high-quality offices and laboratory spaces to approximately 100 high-tech businesses in the fields of Life Sciences, Sustainable Chemistry and ICT. The fundamental research institute ARCNL (Advanced Centre for Nano Lithography) is located on the ground floor. Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed the flexible offices and laboratory spaces around two large atriums that stimulate interaction and contribute to a pleasant and open atmosphere. The atriums form the social heart of the building and function as a lounge or meeting room. In the façade, the striking angled glass canopies actively block the sun, contributing to a stable indoor climate. The building has a BREEAM certificate Very Good and BGrid technology.
