concrete is proud to announce Zoku Copenhagen opening its doors, the second hotel to open following Amsterdam. Following the first Zoku in Amsterdam, Zoku is now also open for business in Copenhagen. The workmeetsplay hotel concept has been created for the global nomad. Zoku is a homeoffice hybrid, also suitable for long stays, with the facilities of a hotel and the social buzz of a thriving neighbourhood. A relaxed place to live, work and socialise with likeminded people while getting wired into the city.

Act Local
Coming by bike like a typical Copenhagen resident or via a short metro-ride from the airport, the building is clearly recognisable due to its iconic Scandinavian red colour. The hybrid building is designed by Danish architectural firm Arkitema and is situated on the Amagerfælledvej 108 in the Amager neighbourhood. On top of the red brick building block concrete and Arkitema designed a loose pavilion on the top floor for the public (social) spaces.

Workmeetsplay
Guests arrive in a greenhouse drenched with daylight and full of greenery, which enhances the feel of a city oasis. The greenhouse guides guests to the bar & living rooms where a Zoku sidekick will welcome and help them find their way in their temporary home; the full Zoku experience can begin.

The Zoku Loft
A loft at Zoku is much more than just a hotel room. It is a spacious micro-apartment, or, better yet, the ‘Zoku Loft’. Here, Zoku and concrete identified, designed and positioned all functions and needs of the global nomad in an intelligent way, creating an interior module that enhances the sense of spaciousness and functionality. In addition to the two standard Zoku lofts, a wide and a deep version, concrete developed three new loft types for Copenhagen specifically.

ABOUT ZOKU
Zoku is founded by Hans Meyer and Marc Jongerius. They assigned Concrete to help develop and design a new type of hotel focused on global nomads, the new generation of creative business travellers who like to mix work & play within a living environment. Zoku Amsterdam proved to be a great success and concrete worked together with Zoku to develop new locations where global nomads can stay longer, work longer, live longer and play longer. Copenhagen is Zoku’s second location, and there are many more to come: Vienna is almost ready to open and Zoku Paris is under construction!
