The project

The sustainable Pharos business complex next to Hoofddorp CS station had very sustainable ambitions for redevelopment. Pharos now shows with its energy-producing, smart and beautiful facade from Solarix that the facade of the future has now been realized!

Pharos is an office building from 2003. The goal of clients Cairn (now Schroder Capital) is to transform the building into the healthiest working community in Europe in which circularity and energy supply are central. Part of the building has been renovated, but a new part has also been added. One of the objectives was the realization of an energy-generating facade.

In collaboration with Cube architects, Solarix has proposed a facade that connects, softens and makes the building more sustainable.

"I would approach Solarix again for a project because it can be a large and very good part of the aesthetics and the architecture of the building in combination with an increasingly higher requirement in terms of sustainability.It is a very good solution for that."

Solarix solar facade

The Solarix solar panels are located in the two golden bands that connect the different building parts. The coloured solar panels are included in aluminium composite carrier elements that can be applied to the various building components. There is a gradient in the colour of the panel so that a dynamic effect is created over the building.

Solarix has been involved throughout the entire process as one of the first initiators of the development of Pharos. During the construction preparation, cooperation was sought with facade builder Sorba and electrical installer Kuijpers and Solarix was awarded the order for the realization of the energy-generating facade from main contractor Coare.
