C-BètaSchiphol Trade Park

circular economy organic lab

We need to seriously rethink our way of building. The circular hotspot C-Bèta takes initiative to bring people together for collaborative innovation. Entrepreneurs, governments, investors, researchers and consultants and whoever is next. Showing new initiatives of pioneers in the field, a destination to share knowledge and educate face to face. In the rural area of Schiphol this location has major ambitions, atmosphere and potential growth. Circular hotspot is an incubator spot for a bigger area development called Circular Valley.

circular is better than new

APTO Architects reinvented the concept of the exhibition hall, optimized the businesscase and added a flex workspace area in the vacant farmhouse dated 1895. C-Bèta is a place of a million stories. Every piece of this puzzle was constructed with the thought of the circular way of building. Upcycled paint, re-used and leased window frames, flooring of fishing nets, 3D printed lights payed by use, wall panels of wood and paper based materials, former greenhouses, heating through infrared panels, all electric driven energy consumption, sharing cars all to show that circular build is so much cooler than new.
