Location: Marnixstraat, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Status: Completed redesign and interior design
Size: 200m2 hotel + 300m2 apartments
Client: B&B Properties
This typical Amsterdam canal house was transformed into a luxury boutique hotel. Defacto made a complete redesign of the six story building, which now holds four high-end apartments and six spacious hotel rooms. The rooms vary in size to offer flexibility and a broad range in accommodation. To create extra space, the building’s basement was deepened, and a patio was installed to bring in additional day light. The patio includes a lush and green garden, which can be overseen by the hotel rooms. In the materialization natural materials such as concrete, steel and wood were used.
The four upper floors each hold a single apartment, each designed with a different style. The hotel rooms vary in size and are designed with careful attention to detail and styled to breathe a unique atmosphere. Lauded design classics like the ‘Eams chair’ are brought together with appealing ‘Dutch Design’ in a complete and well-balanced interior design.
