kensho loft –
a space for tangible

It’s time for a new space.

The kensho loft is your inspirational event location. A retreat in the middle of Stuttgart. Not in front of the business, but with the business. A space where you can meet with yourself and others: at unique events, meetings, workshops, team developments, coaching and networking events. A place of development. For people and companies. For focused hours or whole days. For big issues that need space. And little things that deserve attention. 

In our location you are able to shape the future. Together we give your inspiring ideas a boost. With our flexible room concept, full catering and a professional consulting service, we create experiences with you that stay in your mind and heart.

Working and feeling good is not a contradiction. On the contrary: it contributes to relaxation. The ideal prerequisite for developing potential. This is precisely the meaning of kensho. A Japanese term from the tradition of Zen Buddhism. It refers to an awakening experience in which a person recognises his or her true nature. A small word with great meaning.

One Space. Countless possibilities.

The kensho loft is a space that inspires your senses. A space full of possibilities and inspiring impulses, where you – with our support – decide what suits your event best.

Across an area of 190 m², we realise a variety of event concepts with you in our renovated industrial loft. Workshops with several working islands? Let’s go! Networking event with bar tables? No problem! Corporate event with plenary seating? That is also possible! 

We tailor the kensho loft according to your ideas and needs. For your special event.

Taste the difference

For an all-round successful event, healthy, wholesome dishes must not be missing. After all, eating together also connects people and, at best, provides a great treat for the palate.

Healthy breakfast, signature lunch or live cooking in the evening. With our local catering specialist CLAUS Eismanufaktur & Deli, we give your event a culinary highlight: The selection ranges from a sweet Granola Bowl, to hearty avocado strudels, to our colorful Signature Bowls. You can taste that the ingredients are natural and free of artificial additives. Because ordinary is different.

“We place great emphasis on freshness and taste and want to convey our love of the product with every dish. Precisely because of our concept, we are constantly on the lookout for new trends and like to surprise with new creations, while never disregarding the classics,” says the trio of managers from CLAUS.

We are happy to sweeten your event with this special culinary offer. Discover our two foodexperiences or let yourself be tasted live by cooking professionals on request.

With the kensho loft, a space was created in which one can open up on the one hand and on the other hand also work constructively together on certain topics. And that is what we have done. We have taken away important impulses for us, not only in terms of content, but also in terms of our development. We are grateful, feel in good hands here and can also say at this point that the premises have contributed to this.

Christian & Steffen, Founders & Board Members


A great location, which is thought out and equipped with so much attention to detail. A perfect place to give free rein to new thoughts and to work on them together.
