was selected as the most appropriate candidate for the redevelopment of the Mariënhage area, in a 2013 market consultation procedure by the Eindhoven municipal council. This location, originally an Augustinian monastery, borders on the city center of Eindhoven. It is literally the historic center around which the city has been established


consists of five national monuments, of which the Augustinian church and the former Augustinianum with its Student Chapel are the core. The historical complex is transformed into a ceremonial building and congress hotel. Existing buildings will be restored and new functions will be added.

At the heart of this plan, there is “De Knoop”. A new structure which connects all of the historic elements. De Knoop serves as an entrance to all sides of the location, which makes this closed location an accessible one. This accessibility was an important wish from DELA in the transformation from monastery to ceremonial building. This location will be accessible to everyone.
