Behind-the-scenes at Hamsterhof's construction site
In 2022, work on Hamsterhof began with the demolition of the old factory hall at Hamsterstraat. It made way for the 51 urban studios and apartments of Hamsterhof. Discover what's going on at the construction site at Hamsterstraat.
Hamsterhof is currently being developed by PM+ Van Abbe, a property developer in Eindhoven. PM+ Van Abbe was also involved in the redevelopments of the buildings The Cube, Oude Toren, The Rock, and The Wall in Eindhoven and The Lee Towers in Rotterdam.
Thanks to its unique design, Hamsterhof stands out. Its design contributes to the social dynamics among those living here. Small-scale, all galleries are connected – to other galleries and to the shared garden. Residents can meet others at the meeting point on the ground floor. Hamsterhof also includes a shared indoor gym and shared laundry.
We’ve got a variety of 51 rental studios and apartments to choose from. All 43 studios and 8 one-bedroom apartments are cleverly designed, giving all the space one needs. Thanks to the high windows the homes enjoy plenty of natural light. The first residents moved in on September, 1. Check out more about all 51 rental studios and apartments at Hamsterhof here.
