Philips City Touch - Aachen

An inspiring working environment in former production hall

Philips City Touch provides state of the art solutions for public lighting based on Starsense RF, Starsense Powerline and Amplight. It moves static lighting into a dynamic and flexible platform that is able to support changes in streets and public spaces.
When the Research & Development team at the Aachen Campus had to move to “Rothe Erde”, also in Aachen, Philips appointed PROCOS to support the entire process.

Creating an inspiring and creative environment for the researchers and software developers was a challenge. The City Touch teams had to move from a standard office environment to an old production hall. The PROCOS team managed to transform the former production hall into an inspiring working environment for software developers: additional floors were inserted and connected by stairs and bridges in steel. Another challenge lay in keeping the concept in line with the fire regulation, the technical constrains and the requirements of the organizations.

The City Touch team is very excited about their new working environment!

PROCOS was in charge of:

  • Program of requirements
  • Space Planning
  • Interior design
  • Support during execution phase
  • Communication

Surface: 2.500 m²
