BioPartner Accelerator & Incubator are two buildings that were developed within a Design & Build construction for BioPartner Center Leiden by Dura Vermeer Bouw in partnership with JHK Architecten.

Together the buildings provide 11,500 m² of office and laboratory space for starting or restarting entrepreneurs in the bio-technology industry. Flexible work areas have been realized that offer space and opportunities to companies involved in research into medicines and vaccines. BioPartner Center Leiden Nederland is the largest centre for starters in the life sciences in the Netherlands.

The buildings have been arranged in a very compact way. The spaces that are not dependent on daylight and the technical services are located in the core. The compact form makes a convenient form factor possible: more floor and less façade. This solution turns out to be economical and durable.

The buildings have a very clear floor plan; due to the natural lay-out, there are no dead-ends and none of the tenants is situated at the end of the corridor. In addition, they are extremely flexible to arrange. Units are possible in all sorts of dimensions, and they can easily be combined as well.

The installations are also designed to cater to this degree of flexibility. The air supply enters via a central shaft in the ceilings and air extraction is provided by decentralized vertical outlet shafts. As a result, only short channel lengths are required and crossed lines are avoided as much as possible.

The similar design and alignment of the two buildings creates a powerful ensemble, which is further accentuated by the consistent use of materials, clear horizontal segmentation and high-quality detailing. The omni-directional design of the buildings ensures that there are no rear or side elevations and every façade is presented as frontage.
