The Werkkamer (Work room) can be used flexibly for conferences, training sessions, break-out sessions, workshops or as temporary office space. The venue can be reached through an inner passage in the Westergastheater, which means that the two locations can be used together without difficulty. It is also ideal for use as a break-out room, production office or press centre during major events.
Venue Work Room
The Werkkamer is furnished with robust, industrial furniture by Woodustry. The rectangular room contains a long table, pantry and flat-screen monitor. The spacious vide can be reached via an open staircase and can be used to create additional workplaces.
The Werkkamer is located in the eastern part of the Zuiveringsgebouw (Refinery Hall). This building dates from 1885, and was used to refine gas in large containers, using sand and chemicals. The building has a roof specially designed to cope with potential explosions: in the event of an explosion the steel roof construction would hold the walls together, limiting the damage.
