The QIAGEN campus is in the center of the town of Hilden. The aim was to create a campus of knowledge in a difficult, traditionally inner-city context which reflects this urban character, despite its intended use as a research and production facility. Therefore, we worked together with the town of Hilden and the management of QIAGEN to define specifications regarding the urban design quality of the new buildings and the surrounding campus.
The ensemble incorporates a challenging urban public environment as a residential and commercial development, and creates an urban and open campus of knowledge and communicates in a way which also benefits the urban environment. The scale of the surroundings was taken into consideration here.
Based on our previous master plan study, an R&D building with laboratory and administration functions was created in several construction phases as well as production and laboratory buildings (S1/S2/S3**). The buildings are constructed in a modular fashion, and can be expanded without using much in the way of resources after they have been completed and gone into operation.
