ABOUT THE CROSSBOAT
Rent the Crossboat
We offer a inspirational multi functional space in an innovative and sustainable environment. We can host your next meeting, workshop, presentation, lecture, training or product launch in a calm, magical and connecting place.
The site, a former industrial plot which was heavily polluted, is filled with sustainably retrofitted discarded houseboats that where taken out of the water and placed around a winding wooden walkway. They are surrounded by an undulating landscape of soil-cleaning plants. De Ceuvel is now an eco-hub for creative and social enterprises. The crossboat is one of the thirteen upgraded boats housing offices, ateliers, workshops and multi functional spaces. De Ceuvel also includes an organic restaurant and a floating hotel, Asile Flottant.
Our furnitures allow all kinds of workshop and lecture setups for up to 35 people. We offer WiFi, beamer, screen, flip-over and a small pantry with coffee and tea.
Sleep at De Ceuvel
Hotel Asile Flottant is a collection of six characteristic hotel boats docked in the shallow waters in front of De Ceuvel. Each of the traditional ships features a private entrance, one or two bedrooms, luxurious bathrooms, a small pantry, sun decks and a beautiful view over the water. You can rent out one or more boats in combination with your meetings and make it into a complete experience.
Catering for lunch or snacks is available via Café De Ceuvel. Being a sustainable environment, all foods are tasty, healthy, organic and vegetarian. Let us know your wishes and we’ll make them come true.
Yoga and meditation
Yoga and meditation help you focus and create a positive atmosphere for a productive and dynamic meeting. When distractions no longer get to you, there will be room for connection, inspiration & productivity. Therefore the crossboat offers inspiring yoga and meditation sessions. You can book it at the beginning or at the end of your meeting and we’ll tailor it based on your needs.
In 2010 architects space&matter and Marjolein Smeele brought together a group that put forth the winning concept for reimagining the site of the former de Ceuvel Volharding shipyard.
After winning the competition, a whole team of experts developed the project to a highly innovative plan on the fields of urbanism, architecture and sustainability.
Because of the temporary, 10-year nature of the development and the low budget, space&matter focused on developing an innovative concept where mobility and reuse are central. The design of the urban plan and community-driven nature of the project rapidly combine ‘waste’ land and ‘waste’ materials into something beautiful and valuable.
Placed at the very center of De Ceuvel, The crossboat started as an initiative of Woodies at Berlin and space&matter with the aim to provide a inspirational and versatile space for De Ceuvel community and the neighbourhood.
