Two levels on stilts  

The new Hukseflux office is an elongated two-storey volume on a relatively small plot in the Delftech Park in Delft. The building block is entirely elevated above the ground, so that there is room underneath for a few dozen parking spaces.

On both floors there are workspaces for office and R&D functions and also open arrangements of storage racks.

Clean-cut façades  

The façades are faced with dark sheet-pile cladding, which gives the building a clean-cut appearance. Glazed strips in the aluminium window-frame system ensure plentiful natural light.

The head of the building, where the entrance is also situated, is completely transparent. The profiled cladding continues around a suspended steel construction and past the building, to create a high entrance veranda.

Concrete building  

The Hukseflux building consists almost entirely of concrete. The floors are composed from so-called double-tee slabs. In a double-tee slab, a thin concrete flange forms a single entity with two high ribs. The 16-metre-long slabs bridge the entire width of the building. The building services and lighting have been largely implemented between the ribs.

The multifunctional storage racks at Hukseflux  

A characteristic feature of the interior is the storage racks. At the end of these racks, clean-lined white interior elements have been placed. These function as pantries, storage cupboards, photocopiers and upholstered seating.
