The Keilepand is located in the Rotterdam Makers District of MerweVierhavens (M4H). It is a place for working, making and meeting.

The Keilepand

The Keilepand in the MerweVierhavens (M4H) of Rotterdam was originally a warehouse from 1922. Since then, it has undergone an impressive metamorphosis into a Rotterdam cultural and culinary hotspot. Enthusiastic entrepreneurs from various disciplines are working on a circular and sustainable future.

Collectivity as a basis for circularity x KeileCollectief

To realize a circular and sustainable future in M4H, the entrepreneurs from the building are united in the Keile Collective. The Keile Collective addresses, initiates and participates in current spatial challenges in its own unique way and, with the Keilepand as its home base, forms a catalyst for urban renewal.

She does this by organizing lectures, exhibitions and offering space for cultural activities in the KeileZaal. Think of various events in art, culture and architecture such as: Cinema Culinair, Rotterdam Art Week, Haute Photographie, KeileContemporary, Carbon Stories, WildLife Film Festival Rotterdam and Placemaking Week Europe.

Other cultural entrepreneurs in the Keilepand;

Restobar CULT=US. Cult=us is the new hotspot in the Rotterdam M4H area where you can enjoy delicious food and drinks in a hospitable, energetic and positive environment. The restaurant's kitchen is located in the shared kitchen of Food Union Rotterdam and they consciously choose suppliers and partners who share their sustainable and social ambitions. The focus is on pure and, above all, very tasty dishes to share. The drinks menu includes a number of beers from Kaapse Brouwers, which are brewed in the basement of the Keilepand, as well as several (natural) wines and cocktails. In addition, Cult=us always tries to connect with other participants and there are several dishes from Food Union's world cuisine on the menu. There is also a changing art exhibition every six weeks and you can dance every Friday and Saturday until 3 am: Cult=us=Club!

Food Union Rotterdam. Food Union Rotterdam (FUR) is located on the ground floor. A culinary breeding ground with a shared kitchen where the food entrepreneur takes center stage. Caterers from all over the world find their place here and many beautiful and valuable collaborations arise. FUR also rents event and office spaces. They regularly organize all kinds of events in collaboration with Cult=us and participants from the kitchen. Think of pop-up dinners. There is also a Neapolitan pizza making workshop every two weeks. Keep an eye on the social media of Food Union Rotterdam and their entrepreneurs for all events.

Willes events. Will it be the Italian parade on the water with music & delicious street food, a wild-picking adventure or a discovery tour through the city with culinary treats? Take the plunge and discover the possibilities with Willes Events, an events agency in M4H from the Keilepand.

Boulder Rotterdam. Would you like to try bouldering? Or make bouldering your sport? Het Keilepand offers various courses and training with Boulder Rotterdam. And have you climbed out? Have a nice drink at our bar!"

IABR (International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam). The IABR is a cultural and knowledge institution. In this combination, she can use the power of imagination and design optimally and purposefully for actual change. Since 2009, its two most important instruments have been the IABR–Ateliers, in which the research takes place, and the biennale itself, the cultural event where results are shown and conceptualized, and public debate is held.
