Mortierbrigade Opens Hotel For International Creative Trainees
One of Europe’s hottest creative hotshops, mortierbrigade, opens the mortierbrigade hotel for international trainees.
Jens Mortier, partner and creative director at mortierbrigade: “We just moved into our new offices. Next to our building there is a big house, not being used. So we decided to turn it into a hotel.”
“We’re based in Brussels, the capital of Europe. A lot of talent from all over the world wants to do an internship at our agency. But often the paperwork is a lot of hassle and they can’t afford a place to stay.”
“With our own hotel, we can get great international input from the new creative generation, which is great for us, and our clients. And the trainees have a nice place to stay, night and day.”
From very basic to very luxurious
The hotel has three magnificent suites, and instead of booking them, you need to earn them.
Everyone starts out in the Tent For Two on the ground floor. In order to move up to The Cabin in the Woods on the first, or the luxurious The Royal Suite on the second, you'll have to convince the management.
Jens Mortier: “After that they might get hired, and make enough to afford their own place”
The hotel has opened in December, and reservations are going well.
“We already have demands from New York, Israël, Portugal, and France. Only the most creative ones will be allowed.”
Some French guy with the initials ‘DSK’ tried to get in, but was refused by the hotel management.
