DSM Rosalind Franklin Centre

DSM Rosalind Franklin Centre

The Rosalind Franklin Biotechnology Center is located on the DSM Biotech Campus in Delft. Climate change and environmental pollution are reducing the harmful use of fossil fuels, so scientists here are developing new fuels for the future. Recent result: bio-ethanol. It is one of many advanced products. The future based on biotechnology is taking shape.

Fokkema & Partners designed workplaces, meeting places and offices in the central atrium of the laboratory. All the rooms are openly connected, but sufficient privacy has been retained. One of the most striking details are the “pebbles”; the organic forms are bio-responsible and functional. They give the atrium a nice touch when it is quiet. The warm, informal atmosphere reinforces the idea that there is a social heart here.

Keijsers was commissioned by DSM to furnish the office area. The kitchen areas, informal workplaces, custom storage spaces and organically-shaped pebbles in the atrium were delivered to the satisfaction of the client.
