The central building of the Corporate Campus Apeldoorn, designed by ADP Architects, is the conference centre. The whole building is set up to stimulate interaction and communication.
As working in a green environment is the main concept of the campus the landscape literally continues in to the entrance hall of the conference building, so nature and architecture melt together in the heart of the campus. Standing in the tall entrance hall you can see the restaurant, and the 25 conference rooms located on different floors. The restaurant, seating 750 people, is spread out over different levels gradually stepping down towards the forest outside.

This was the first prize in a restricted national contest announced by the “Madrid Autonomous Region” and the Getafe Town Council. Once we had won the contest, we talked to the jury, composed of four architects. They told us the had very much liked the plan and that it bore a great resemblance to the monastery of San Lorenzo del Escorial in its ground plan and size, which made it even more interesting.

The client’s specific request for this press conference room was to create a project that would be both contemporary and timeless at the same time in order to match the Institution that it would represent. We aimed to transform this “technical tool” into a space of representation and communication for the Minister and its politicians. A high number of technical equipments and utilities needed to be integrated in the suspended ceilling in order to a clear a clean, bright and sun filled space.

Already for many years the therapeutical treatment of physical and emotional disturbances or illnesses by the application of light has been acknowledged medically. Light has different effects on the human body depending on the spectral colour: so a firm red has an exciting effect while violet light seems calming.
