Conservatorium Hotel
- Amsterdam

2006 - 2012
Fields of intervention: architecture, interior design


The Conservatorium Hotel occupies the site of Amsterdam’s former music conservatorium, built in the 19th century. The original gothic feeling of the building was left unchanged while new elements, such as the covered glass courtyard, were inserted to create a contrast between antique and modern.
The concept emphasizes a combination of styles and a clear, unmistakable sense of design where existing and new elements are brought together in a discriminating dialogue. The covered interior courtyard is without a doubt the most striking new component. Constructed completely of glass, it underscores the contrast between old and new, while doing full justice to the original structure of the historic building.
