The Concept

Supporting the rising “work from anywhere” lifestyle Zoku is shifting the focus from only sleeping to living, working and socializing!

Opened in 2016 by Dutch entrepreneurs Hans Meyer and Marc Jongerius, Zoku was named after the Japanese word for family, tribe or clan.

Zoku facilitates living and working internationally for the growing population of globetrotting professionals, remote workers, and digital nomads.

Moving far beyond the standard hotel proposition of putting heads in beds, their bold concept has won numerous awards, received rave reviews from guests, and is heavily celebrated for its lively Social Spaces and unique community structure that facilitates genuine connections among residents.

The hybrid hotel offers the perfect blend for individuals and businesses who are in need of a venue that seamlessly balances work and leisure.

With the WorkZoku coworking membership, rooftop Social Spaces, and Living Kitchen restaurant, Zoku will also attract internationally minded locals looking for dining, community building and networking within communal areas.

By creating these adaptable spaces facilitated by an on-site Community Manager, Zoku solves the rigid nature of traditional hotels, ending the limitations of working from home and spearheading the ‘work from anywhere’ revolution in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere.

Following its successful localization in Amsterdam, Zoku has expanded with its new locations in Copenhagen (now open) and Vienna which opened on the 1st of June.

The Design

Zoku Copenhagen features 160 guest rooms and so-called Zoku Lofts in five different categories and sizes, each designed to meet all requirements of modern travellers and roaming professionals alike.

The cleverly designed apartment-inspired lofts are perfectly geared towards long-stay guests, and come with;

  • Open living area
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Comfy lofted beds

The top floor functions as an extended living room, but one with great versatility as it offers an effortless transition from leisure to work and back again thanks to co-working and meeting spaces, event spaces, and last but not least, a lively informal restaurant called Living Kitchen serving freshly made, healthy dishes all day long.
