Hotel, Amsterdam

The Fletcher hotel is a new landmark for the city of Amsterdam. The 60 meter high hotel has a compact floor plan with a diameter of only 24 meters, resulting in a characteristic slim silhouette along the A2 to Amsterdam Southeast. The limited space is used as efficiently as possible. The lobby and coffee corner are  on the ground floor. 120 rooms encircle the staircase and lifts in the heart of the hotel. On the sixteenth floor there are five meeting rooms, which can be linked together. The sky lounge is on the top (eighteenth) floor and the restaurant on the floor below. Both offer wide and impressive views over Amsterdam.

Parking spaces on the ground floor are hidden under a roof that is vegetation-covered, so that it blends into the green surroundings. There is an additional underground parking for 60 cars. By, among other things, the application of a thermal storage system and very high insulation, the hotel is given a GreenCalc B certification.

An facade made entirely of glass, shields the massive outer wall with round windows and makes the building distinctive, independent and transparent to the environment. The architecture of the opposite food strip is reflected in the circular motif. The color blue gives the hotel a striking appearance and simultaneously creates a powerful interaction with the sky. The ring-shaped patterns in blues return on the laminated glass and create depth. Through the windows of the rooms and the light on the facade, the building is illuminated at night. Hence the Fletcher Hotel is distinctly visible and identifiable to the environment, even after sunset.
