Within the woven urban design frameworks, we designed a sober and robust building that complements the surroundings. Central to the building is an atrium that serves as a meeting place for the hotel, bar and restaurant guests and visitors of the concept store and bakery. This way, guests will feel at home among the Amsterdammers.

The proposed brand is Indigo Hotel, the boutique brand of Intercontinental Hotels Group. The rooms are all oriented to the water that surrounds the plot.

make Amsterdam

The building is energy neutral designed and consists largely of locally available recycled materials, for instance the wooden front frame will be made from annually felled and fallen trees in Amsterdam. The cooling load of the building is greatly reduced by providing movable perforated steel shutters to facades of the sun-loaded rooms. The central theme of the building is Make Amsterdam, in which the entire building, from hotel interior, concept store, to programming of the atrium, are supplied with products made by the Amsterdam design and manufacturing industry.
