Kazerne Hotel Eindhoven

Kazerne | Eindhoven

The Vibe: Design powerhouse.

The Area: In the happening De Bergen area of Eindhoven’s city centre. Eindhoven is world renowned as the design capital of the Netherlands and host city for Dutch Design Week. In the local area, guests can enjoy the contemporary art museum Van Abbemuseum, the Philips Museum, the hybrid exhibitions at MU artspace, and the workshop of Piet Hein Eek.

The DNA: Housed in former military barracks (the oldest building dating to 1825) – for which the hotel is named – and an adjoining industrial warehouse, Kazerne is a tangible celebration of design, immersing guests in an environment where they eat, drink, meet, and sleep surrounded by the works of leading and upcoming designers. The brainchild of husband-and-wife team Annemoon Geurts & Koen Rijnbeek, Kazerne is a hybrid hospitality concept designed to provide guests with an authentic immersion into Eindhoven’s internationally renowned creativity and artistic expression. A tapestry of juxtaposition, the interiors are a fusion of exclusive and inclusive, of high-end and no nonsense, of dark and light, of old and new, of matt and gloss. Featured design pieces by the likes of Kiki van Eijk, Daphna Laurens, and David Derksen represent the cultural zeitgeist.

Suite-Me-Up: The rooms and suites range from the 15m2 Hidden Room, which is largely reserved for chefs and artists-in-residence as part of Kazerne’s cultural program, to the spectacular 140m2 Penthouse Loft. Located in the former stable attic, the Hay Loft features original wooden beams and boarding, as well as a charming hatch overlooking the courtyard, while the Corner Duplex located in the former barracks features a unique historic-prison-cell-turned-pantry. Being part of the changing exhibitions throughout Kazerne, the art and design in the guestrooms is changed regularly, incorporating pieces from some of the Netherlands’ leading creatives.
