Press preview QO Amsterdam

Thursday March 8th Mulderblauw and the other parties involved organized an exclusive pre-opening press tour at QO Amsterdam.

Owner and initiator, Klaus Vink and Xander Bueno de Mesquita, kicked off the inspiring morning by illustrating how the concept came about. Robert Mulder along with Paul de Ruiter and Christa de Vaan (Arup), presented the design and how they worked together to establish one of Europe’s most sustainable hotels.

Consecutively, the press got a tour around the hotel, during which JP van Eesteren, Croonwolter&dros, TANK and Conran and Partners highlighted the smart solutions and design choices made throughout the hotel.


Urban planner Bart Vlaanderen explained about the development plans for the new neighbourhood ‘the Amstelkwartier’.

To complete the QO experience, the day ended on the 21st floor with drinks and bites and an amazing view at Juniper & Kin, QO’s rooftop bar.

QO Amsterdam is a project commissioned by Amstelside BV. The hotel and its sustainable concept are a design of Mulderblauw architects in cooperation with Paul de Ruiter Architects and Arup. J.P. van Eesteren and Croonwolter&dros are responsible for the realization of the hotel, with 4Building involved for project management.
