Hotel de l’Europe is a household name. It is one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful 5* hotels. The hotel lies on the Amstel across from the Munttoren. In addition to the 111 rooms and the two star Michelin restaurant Bord d’Eau, it is home to Hoofdstad Brasserie and the legendary Freddy’s bar. Named after the late proprietor and ‘regular’ Freddy Heineken.
WISHES OF THE CLIENT
We want to offer our guests even more and that is why we would like to have a luxury Spa in our hotel. Next to the 4 treatment rooms, there must be space for a Turkish bath, saunas, a gym and a swimming pool. The Skins Institute will decide on the interior in addition to running this Spa.
As house designer for the ‘Skins’ formula, I was asked by the Skins Institute to also design the Skins Institute Spa. Gold reflects top quality, exclusivity and luxury. It also has a warm look & feel. And, coincidentally, it is also the favourite material of Paulina Moes, founder and owner of Skins Institute. It is already used in the house-style.
