THE TARGET
Amsterdam still has a shortage of pleasant, affordable hotel rooms. The requirements of the location are met, but the building has to be completely renovated. Reinvent this hotel again. Give it its own character so that guests feel at home here and are only too happy to return.

THE PROPERTY
Three connected adjoining properties dating from 1899, beautifully located next to the Vondelpark. It used to house an old youth hostel that was badly in need of maintenance.

GREAT APPEAL
The Concert building Vondelparkbuurt is a huge draw for foreign guests and business people. A cosmopolitan village. A client from Moscow recognised the potential and also purchased a pied-a-terre in the neighbourhood.

ROY’S VISION
The 19th Century building, the neighbourhood and the park are all strong starting points. We managed to blend into the atmosphere of the area. A classic ambience with a contemporary touch in places. They used a truly beautiful spot on the 1st floor for the breakfast room. By moving this downstairs, space was made for two fabulous rooms that dictate the style of the other 33 rooms.

The narrow entrance was enlarged by opening up the hallway and rooms adjacent to it. This meant a multifunctional lobby annex breakfast room annex brasserie could be built.
