ECE Startup Campus

ARX architecten as Architects

The Startup Campus is the entrepreneurial community of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. They offer programs, events and create a suitable environment with the mission to create tomorrow's leading entrepreneurs. We designed a new campus floor where young, nascent and ambitious entrepreneurs can learn entrepreneurial skills, have a physical place to work and practice, can meet other like minded entrepreneurs, are challenged and, are inspired to grow as a entrepreneur and above all as a person.

The major hurdle in the design was to turn the closed, structural core into a serving element. We wrapped this concrete mass with a wooden structure containing most of the floor’s utilities like storages, copy-machines, meeting places, a phone booth and (fire-)installations. By clustering these functions in the heart of the floorplan the surrounding spaces could be designed with full transparency.
