  • Notes 
    • Na gedurende de jaren '60 werkzaam te zijn geweest voor P.J.H. Cuypers , met name als opzichter bij de restauratie van de Sint-Servaaskerk in Maastricht, vestigde Kayser zich in 1873 als zelfstandig architect in Venlo , waar hij tevens de functie van stadsarchitect kreeg. In 1891 verhuisde hij naar Maastricht . Hij ontwierp de kerken vooral in neogotische stijl. Aanvankelijk was zijn kerkelijk werk geïnspireerd door de Franse gotiek, maar vanaf 1878 waren zijn ontwerpen geregeld beïnvloed door de baksteengotiek van het noorden van Duitsland.

      About his youth nothing is known. Nor seems the actual spelling of his familyname to be known; several documents refer to him as Kaijser, while in other older sources the name Keyzer can be found.
      In the late 1850's he became an overseer at P.J.H. Cuypers' restoration of the St. Servaas in Maastricht. At Cuypers' office in Roermond he learned the further skills of architecture. In the early 1870's he became an autonomous architect. Especially in the field of churches he became an important architect, but he also designed profane buildings. While his churches are in neo-Gothic styles mostly, his schools and town halls often are in other styles. Although active in several parts of the country, Kayser built most of his work in the province of Limburg. In 1873 he moved to Venlo, where he was town architect until 1891. After that he returned to Maastricht.
      In his first few years as a church architect Kayser found his inspiration in early French Gothicism. In the late 1870's he exchanged that influence for a new one, the North-German brick Gothicism. Typical features of Kayser's work from then on are the deep niches in which are the windows, the stepped gables and the use of glazed bricks. Elements of this style return in much of his work in all of his career. This North-German orientation sets Kayser apart from most of the others of P.J.H. Cuypers' students.
      His son Jules became an architect too and was also mostly active in Limburg.
