Employed by Workshop of Wonders

This 150-room Hotel in Hoofddorp is a transformed office building eight minutes away from Schiphol. It has been specially developed for the Millennial in transition and is a place where one can relax according to need or can actively look for a meeting with others. Where possible, circular materials and products have been used in the design.

It is very special that Workshop of Wonders has designed not only the rooms, but also all public spaces and even the new building structure, which with the gold-colored perforated slats on the outside of the building also serves as a signal function to the environment.

The building has various public areas, each with its own character. The heart of the building is an atrium that has been set up as a multifunctional dynamic area, including a restaurant, kitchen and lounge. A mezzanine in this atrium offers a place with more peace and quiet among the greenery. In addition, the building also has a waiting area, check-in area, several meeting rooms and an executive lounge. A lot of attention has been paid to details and materialization, which makes everything fit.  Carefully selected high-quality furniture completes the contemporary total experience of the rooms.

Within this project I played an important role in creating the design and developing the whole.
