Pharos’ unique architectural details make the building recognizable for miles around. The building's rounded corners create an intuitive, pleasant experience and appearance.

An outdoor terrace on the second level and green rooftop offer an oasis of greenery and tranquility. The once unused, gray square will be transformed into a lively meeting place and public space. A new entrance that breathes healthy working and a large restaurant on the ground floor open to the public makes everyone feel welcome.

Captivating common areas

The common areas in Pharos are an important differentiating factor of the building. The Pharos building will provide a large variety of common and general areas that will offer the occupiers a wide range of different meeting rooms, flex working areas and informal meeting places. This enables tenants to give their employees a dynamic and vibrant work environment with a variety of options for activity based working. In addition, efficient use of the floor area and smart building management will lead to significant cost savings and add value to any organization.

Ground floor entrance area

This starts in the entrance area where everyone feels welcome, and where formal and informal meetings and a range of facilities complement each other. After the construction work is completed a sustainable food court/grand café will be opened on the ground floor of the low-rise building.

19th floor: General space for tenants

On the 19th floor we will create a healthy business club for lessees, employees and visitors. This space will offer options for inspiring events, presentations, vitality and meetings. The 19th floor will offer a presentation area, an auditorium (ca. 80 to 100 persons), business lounge and sky view bar area, flex working stations, smaller and larger meeting rooms, a silence room and an executive board/dining room.

Large floorplates available on low rise 

The high rise offers floorplates of approx. 875sqm. The high rise connected with the low rise (1st floor till 5th floor) offer floorplates of approx. 2,500sqm. These floors can easily be divided into smaller areas.

10 Pharos building innovations:

  1. Completely rebuilt facade
  2. Fully circular inner wall made from recycled paper
  3. SmartSkin technology energy-efficiency windows
  4. Pure ionized air by Ionair & full spectrum light
  5. All waste separated at source
  6. Fresh farm-to-table food served daily
  7. Spectacular hanging meeting room
  8. Relaxing Reload room
  9. Pharos fit program by Energy Up
  10. Biodiversity rich green roof & future green house
  1. Completely rebuilt facade

    Studio Solarix will apply its innovative façade panel at selected spots throughout the building. These façade panels generate solar energy to power the communication and lighting.

  2. Fully circular inner wall made from recycled paper

    Pharos suppliers have developed an innovative, fully circular inner wall on site. Companies Ecor and EverUse have developed a strong insulation material and wall panel from recycled paper, compressed without any chemicals. This is finished with Ekotex paint which is fully biodegradable and CO2 neutral. Quickpanel manufactures the inner wall panels. These are completely free of volatile toxic substances and even absorb CO2. This inner wall can be used and re-used several times by tenants in their design plan.

  3. SmartSkin technology energy-efficiency windows

    The smart energy-efficient windows of the new façade of the low rise are fitted with SmartSkin technology from PHYSEE. This literally creates a “smart” façade. The strips generate exactly enough energy to operate the electric blinds. This saves power consumption. Sensors on the windows also collect and send local data to the electric blinds, ensuring that they are responding to comfort preferences of building users.

  4. Pure ionized air by Ionair & full spectrum light

    The air purity of the indoor climate is considerably improved by the ionization technique of Ionair. This technique approximates the experience of naturally pure air for employees such as in the mountains or the forest. It also saves a lot in energy costs because the ventilation rate can be reduced.

  5. All waste separated at source

    All waste is separated at the source, all of which is green and kitchen waste. The composting machine from Ecocreation (in the basement of the building) processes all the green waste into compost within 48 hours. This is used by the farmers and suppliers of Cape Karpa in the surrounding farmlands.

  6. Fresh farm-to-table food served daily

    The food program provided by Cape Karpa is a success story for the tenants already. Using products harvested in the morning, on your plate at lunchtime. Fresh, organic, mostly veggie produce is the standard here. Cape Karpa restaurant has been set up on the ground floor. First in a pop up environment and then in food plaza with a terrace outside and open to the public. Breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as options for take away are available to tenants.

  7. Spectacular hanging meeting room

    Outside, between the pillars of Pharos building, a spectacular hanging meeting room is being constructed. It is accessible from the main area on the ground floor and visible from the outside. It’s a really nice showcase of circular building too. All of the components are made of circular materials and can be disassembled and re-used without losing its value. In the meantime it’s a meeting room where every company in the area wants to organize their meetings.

  8. Relaxing Reload room

    Reload room: Unique is also the notion that relaxing is evenly important in a working environment than physical exercises. Therefore the reload room on the 19th floor is provided with the O2 chair. This chair brings workers in a deep state of relaxation in only a 10-minute program; a real reload.

  9. Pharos fit program by Energy Up

    The fit program is coordinated by Energy Up, known by their alcohol free day breaker parties. For all tenants a balanced, personal program is provided. It starts with a fit and health check, which is even approved for the obligated preventive medical examination. A variety of activities are organized, from Yoga to boxing, running group to 20 minutes fit program.

  10. Biodiversity rich green roof & future green house

    The roof of the low-rise building will be given a new insulation layer and will be executed by Koninklijke Ginkel Groep as a green roof. In addition to insulation (and reduction of power usage for cooling and heating), this has a major function in water storage in the further petrified area. Bee hives are placed on the green roof to contribute to biodiversity and it is being investigated whether a greenhouse can be placed on the roof.
