Truly unique sleeping experience in a ten-object architectural pod eco-village in Rotterdam.
In the edgy and popular Delfshaven district of Rotterdam, one of Europe’s most desirable cities, Culture Campsite is an extraordinary accommodation phenomenon; an architect-designed communal campus with ten individual ‘sleeping objects’, each with their own clear aesthetic voice and all crafted from recycled materials.
Neither yurt nor tiny home nor tent, the pod-style spaces are entirely unique and have to be seen (and slept in) to be fully appreciated. Expedition North Cape is a box within a box, inspired by the Japanese capsule hotel with a greenhouse twist, while Sleeping Pod is an upcycled animal shelter, perched on extended stilts to provide sweeping views, like a raised Airstream Trailer. Ascend to Little Pea up galvanised steps and find yourself within a wood-finished chamber within a retro submarine style structure which started life as animal silos.
Val Ross is a barrel-like structure which sits on a slope, raised on two legs and accessed via a metal ladder. With its hinged roof and cylindrical bedroom, this Dutch former farm silo has a distinctly otherworldly aspect, and is a favourite with guests. Floating Bricks is popular with families of younger children, incorporating optical illusion, upcycled materials and industrial design into an open plan cabin-style space ample room for yoga, reading, or family games.
Between the ten architecturally extraordinary spaces, all manner of styles, materials and designs have been implemented, making this a truly unique accommodation concept combining immersive art experience with campus-style co-living. In addition to the individual sleeping objects, which sleep between two and four guests each, there are all of the facilities you would expect from a campsite, including a common room-style shared space, and communal bathroom amenities.
The site itself is just ten minutes from the centre of Rotterdam, in the Schiemond neighbourhood, and can be reached cheaply and quickly by car, public transport, or on one of the city’s short term rental bikes. Those wishing to arrive in style are welcome to charter a water-taxi; book online for a transparent pricing structure and expect to pay around 12 Euros. One of the benefits of Culture Campsite is its proximity to the historic heart of Rotterdam, while the district immediately surrounding the campsite is home to many of the city’s art galleries, museums, and creative pop-ups. There are also several lovely restaurants nearby for any foodies out there - just ask the owners and they'll tell you all about them.
