Text description provided by the architects. This laboratory for research in elementary physics is situated on the edge of Sciencepark Watergraafsmeer in East Amsterdam. It consists of three parallel components: a narrow office wing, a central volume with laboratories for experiments, and a section with workshops. The three components are separated by two inner corridors that physically isolate the vibration-sensitive laboratories from the other buildings. These 12-metre-high inner corridors make it possible to introduce large-scale equipment at any point to the stacked laboratories on either side. The central building is interrupted by a central hall that connects the two corridors, as well as connecting the two floors by means of large staircases. Walkways pass over the inner corridors to create circuits on the different levels.
