Leiden Bio Science Park
The Leiden Bio Science Park is one of the most successful Science Parks in the world with the most life science start-ups in the Netherlands. The Bio Science Park aims to be an inspiring and vibrant place for R&D by 2025. The Bio Science Park is a place where you can live, work, research, learn and relax.
Robust and warm character
The design combines two characteristics, robustness and warmth. Together they create a building that promotes a high quality of work. It is located on a very green plot full of lush trees and is bustling with biodiversity. The solid closed corners create a robust character and powerful architecture. Between these solid corners, a transparent facade with horizontal slats is placed, which opens up to the maximum and brings daylight deep into the building. The light façade reflects the green environment so that the building blends in seamlessly. This creates a place where the employees of Batavia Biosciences can entirely focus on their work. This translates into an open, transparent building with spacious floors. The entrance is located at the front of the building on an inviting plaza and serves as a meeting and relaxation area.
The building offers a distinctly stimulating work environment. Smart, open spaces and an impressive interior design give the building dynamism, while a simple layout creates clarity. The building offers optimal logistic flows on each floor to make the production process as efficient as possible. The floors have an impressive height of approximately 6m, in which prefab pods and lab spaces are placed to make the building maximally flexible in the future.
Sustainability as a key focus
Sustainability is a cornerstone of the building's design, a key focus that is visible everywhere. PV panels are located on the roof and in addition, the building is gas free. The building receives a BREEAM Excellent certification.
