The new and upcoming space in west.


Louwesweg 1 1066 EA Amsterdam Netherlands

Practical Information for VISITING THE SPACE

We are open many evenings as keys are available to all our members. Currently IRC (techinc@OFTC) is the easiest place to see if anyone is planning to open on any particular evening. We also have an open social evening at the space every Wednesday from 7pm.

The current state of the space is visible on our homepage at or in our IRC channel.

There is also a SpacePhone that can be reached at: ''landline' +31 85 201 6320'

Please call one of the above numbers when you are out front and require someone to open the door for you.

ALL lights except the main TL lights plus many other devices, like audio

Lights of original {east} space controllable via a web interface: http://powerbar.ti/

Power and lights of new {west} space controllable via a web interface:

There will be one single webinterface soon; this is work in progress due to expansion and to fix reliability problems.

The project page is here:


In the future there will also be a physical interface. If someone makes it.

Space status button

If you are the first to enter or last to leave, use the space status button to mark the space open or closed respectively.

The button is located inside, right behind the door, next to the coat rack. Press it once to open and again once to close. If the leds on the TechInc logo are on, the status is open.

Other data

  • Most of the space has a lowered ceiling, hiding ventilation and other ducts. it's about 1 meter lower than the actual ceiling (2.8m vs 3.8m high). It's made of white/beige tiles of metal, suspended from the ceiling. It stops about a meter? short from the north wall (right on the map).
  • The south wall has four doors, giving access to our dirty room, a small room with no specific purpose, an off-limits door to a building maintenance duct, and -in the newly acquired space- a small room with no specific purpose with a glass facade.
  • The south wall is made of one layer of compacted black stone and a layer of bricks, the north and west walls are standard two layer plasterboards, filled with glass wool isolation material.
  • The east wall (bottom on the floorplan), is mainly window, starting about 90~100cm from the floor and stopping about 30cm before the lowered ceiling. The last 30cm are panels, possibly wood, possibly metal.
  • The west wall connects to the hallway via our main entrance and used to connect to one of our neighbours, whose extra space we acquired in February 2014. The new situation therefore has a double door width opening to that space, directly in the corner next to the two doors mentioned above.
  • The floor has carpet everywhere
  • The small space on the east (bottom) side, has a row of RJ45 and power sockets on the wall, just below the window, besides that there are only a few power sockets in the space (but both smaller rooms have power and rj45 sockets)
  • On the east side, the floor above us extends a bit by a meter? or so from our most easter wall, extending north and south, this 'outdoor' ceiling starts at the same height as where our windows stop. The space between this outdoor ceiling is 'accessible' and is mainly empty or used for ducts, this space goes up to our real ceiling.
  • We have neighbouring spaces on the north wall, the neighbors west have left and we added their space to ours. The south wall is an outside wall.
