This imposing building breathes history and covers a whopping 23,000m². It once housed over two floors full of computers that maintained telephone connections in south-east Brabant, but now it is time for a spectacular transformation.

= Microstad

The successful workplace concepts Microlab and De Stadstuin joined forces and developed an innovative concept for our premises. Microstad is a place where crazy things are allowed to happen. A breeding ground for creativity, a melting pot of talent and a source of inspiration. Here it is all about freedom, contrasts and rough edges that reinforce each other. A place where experience and participation stand central. Everyone is welcome, as long as you are not afraid to be challenged. This is where extraordinary encounters and collaborations arise.


The design of the building will be thoroughly redesigned. Microstad will be made more transparent and accessible, both inside and outside. It will be a place where pioneers, entrepreneurs, students, creatives and the inhabitants of Eindhoven come together to work, meet and experiment. Microstad will soon be the place where tech, knowledge and creativity go hand in hand.

The realisation of Microstad requires creativity and expertise. The young, ambitious team of Microstad, Microlab and De Stadstuin is working together with, among others, Architektenburo Marcel van Dijk, Van Helmond architecten and BAN Bouw Nuenen to transform the building into a sparkling and open environment. Technical challenges are overcome and the closed character of the building will become more open. Safety and functionality are combined with aesthetics and accessibility.
