SRON, Netherlands Institute for Space Research

Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed the latest research centre for SRON around the four programs of astrophysics, exoplanets, earth and technology. The building has several state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops in which SRON designs and builds essential sensors for satellites. Special labs include low-vibration, electromagnetically sensitive cleanrooms and Cryolabs. The spatial atrium on the first floor connects the various offices and laboratory functions and stimulates visual interaction among employees. In the façade, parametrically designed shading elements contribute to a healthy indoor climate and an unobstructed view. The transparent plinth showcases the activities of SRON and improves visibility and collaboration towards Leiden Bio Science Park. The design was awarded a BREEAM-NL Excellent certificate.
