In the coming years, the Vredeoord location will undergo a metamorphosis to become Philips Business Park Eindhoven. The construction of the VS Building is the first in a series of building activities.
The core of the Urban Design Masterplan is to arrange future buildings in a strip. The entrance to every building will be situated on a pedestrian promenade on the dividing line between city and woods. VS Building has been conceived as a diamond shape (no dead-ends) surrounding a green inner courtyard with the entrance on the diagonal of park and patio.
Besides a compact core, each of the four building parts has a large obstacle-free office floor with a view on three sides.
The transparent links between the building parts give the volume its distinctive sculptural quality and make it possible in every façade to look through to the patio.
VS has two facets. Technical and business-like in the façades on all sides. Warm and intimate in the courtyard.
