Tours at Strijp-S with an experienced guide
Brandstore Eindhoven (VVV) has been fascinated with Strijp-S, the old Philips premises and a historical heritage site in Eindhoven, for years. During this group outing, an experienced guide will tell you about Strijp-S’ Philips past, the former Philips factory grounds (also known as the “Forbidden City”), its many creative developments and goals for the future. Contact us for a consultation if you have any additional wishes. We will gladly offer our advice in person.

Fresh buildings with clean architecture.
Trudo transformed the buildings along Hoge Rug into an extraordinary living and working area. One thing has remained unchanged, however: its characteristic appearance, both internally and externally. Rooftop gardens, boasting impressive views of the city, have been realised on the roofs of both buildings—a unique outdoor space for loft renters.
The Apparatenfabriek was redeveloped by Trudo into a multitenant business building with more than one hundred workspaces, divided over roughly 20,000 m2 of commercial and business spaces for the creative industry.
The SX building, which has been one of Strijp-S’ most striking eye-catchers since its opening in 2014, used to be one of Philips’ many factory buildings. Today, it is the place where sport, marketing and media meet. The SX building is home to more than fifty entrepreneurs, all sharing the common denominator of an unbridled love for sport.
Philips’ former physics laboratory today houses cinema Natlab, previously Plaza Futura. Natlab is a film theatre that has been offering a wealth of cultural activities—film, theatre, dance, expositions, lectures and debates—since 2013. It also has a café-restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious lunch, dinner or drink.
Skatepark Area 51 is located in the SEU building. With its impressive 2,800-m2 surface area, it is the Netherlands’ largest indoor skatepark. On top of its extensive street section, the park also boasts a large bowl and a comprehensive mini ramp with spine and pool coping. Lessons and children can make use of the separate learning area with low practice obstacles.
At the edge of Strijp-S, in an area of no less than 8,200 m2, Woonbedrijf and Stam + De Koning Bouw have developed SAS-3, a project with more than 198 residences, 20 city residences with gardens, 178 apartments (owner-occupied and for rent) with a loggia or balcony, and a parking basement with 183 parking spaces underneath the apartments.
Haasje Over (its current working title) will become a bridge building of two residential layers, stretched out above the existing skate hall of Area 51, with attached to it, a higher tower, right beside Onder de Leidingstraat. The tower will house 136 loft residences of 50 m2 and a ceiling height of 3.5 metres in its 19-storeys and height of 70 metres. The bridge over the skate hall will give space to 50 small bridge residences—all social rental housing, like all the other Trudo residences at Strijp-S.
