KWR Watercycle Research Institute

By 25-05-2016

KWR Watercycle Research Institute is a renowned research institute in the field of water and water cycles, which develops expertise and makes it accessible to various national and international organizations such as drinking water companies, regional water boards, local governments and trade and industry.

The cepezed-designed new building has been designed as a transparent pavilion in a green setting, with a strong relationship between the inside and outside. Internally, the research building is fully directed towards flexible user possibilities, a light and pleasant work environment, interaction and the sharing of knowledge.

The pavilion itself is largely made of glass, which gives the users an optimal connection with the green surroundings. The building structure consists mainly of two generic bays 12 metres deep. These do not have any supporting walls and have a gross storey height of four metres. This arrangement allows for every conceivable combination of laboratories, offices and shared functions such as meeting spots, quiet spaces, brainstorming spaces, meeting rooms, project team areas and so on.

KWR Watercycle Research Institute is winner category stimulerende environments in BNA Best Building of the year award 2016.
