For a long time, Philips Lighting’s head office has been a closed enclave in the centre of Eindhoven. diederendirrix designed the redevelopment of the 8.6 acres grounds.
On the north side, high-rise flats will be built closely together, which enables the creation of a city park in the southern part through which the brook Gender can flow again. 600 apartments will be built in the 43.000 m2 office building. A public passage connects the park to the north side. On the ground floor there is room for, among other things, a supermarket and coffee bar.
The structure of the building and the concrete stairwell will be conserved, while the façades will be opened. Large sash windows let a great deal of light into the loft residences. Beautiful materials such as natural stone façade surfaces and golden, aluminium window frames create a luxurious effect. The Onyx high-rise flat, also designed by diederendirrix, will be located on the north side. Philips Lighting will be completed in the summer of 2016.
