Artist impression of the new LabQ building at Amsterdam Science Park. The building comprises 7 floors with a total area of 13,000 square meters. Learn more about the design.
Atrium and tiered garden
The building will have a light, wooden structure, with functions such as offices, small teaching spaces, service spaces, an entrance area and elevators, surrounding a solid, concrete core that will house lab spaces and classrooms.
The building will have a total of seven floors. The third floor will feature two notable elements in the design: a compact atrium with offices all around and an ascending rooftop garden, referred to as the ‘tribune garden’. The design of the tribune stairs was inspired by the flowing shapes of quantum equipment. The rooftop garden with the tribune is partly sheltered from the wind and can provide space for study and/or work areas.
Collaboration is Key
The building provides space for co-creation and field labs, promoting collaboration between external partners and the LabQ ecosystem, resulting in an environment where ideas thrive and shared impact for society is realised.
Within LabQ, quantum research will flourish, as it will serve as a home base for the successful QuSoft quantum software research centre, and it will also have room for advanced laser setups, which are driving breakthroughs in quantum technology. The focus will also be on the development of quantum applications and sensing.
