Venue rental

A place of inspiration and reflection

On a polluted and abandoned shipwharf we’ve build a sustainable and cultural oasis. It is a place for artists, creatives and green entrepreneurs. Together we’re working to make De Ceuvel an inspirational site. Besides the Café there are different event spaces on the site available for rent for one-day events.

Meeting Spaces


Metabolic Lab



The Crossboat is situated on the square of de Ceuvel. It is a multifunctional space with a special design by architects Space & Matter and designstudio Woodies at Berlin. It is ideal for meetings for a maximum of 35 people (seated). There’s a small kitchen, wifi, projector and flip-over.

Metabolic Lab is the sustainable and circular heart of de Ceuvel, and an ideal space for meetings & presentations. Metabolic Lab is a rectangular space equipped with wifi, a small kitchen, a projector, and a long, beautiful meeting table that can easily seat 20 people. Without the table, the space can host events up to 35 people (seated). Metabolic Lab is also available for public events especially those with a sustainable, ecological or circular character.

Catering by Café de Ceuvel


Café de Ceuvel is right in the middle of De Ceuvel. All products used are organic, sustainable, fairtrade or of local origin. It’s not possible to rent the entire Café for a private party or meeting. However, if you rent one of the other spaces on De Ceuvel for a meeting, presentation, workshop, or other event, we would love to serve you food and drinks.

For small groups, it’s possible to order a la carte. For groups larger than 10 persons, we use a separate banqueting menu which you can download here.
