The Netherlands – The newly launched brand, co-founded by architecture office Space&Matter, project development firm Grayfield and the founders of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy, comprises individual rooms located across Amsterdam’s multiple bridge houses.
The former residences of the bridge controllers – whose role has now been made redundant by technology – house the decentralised hotel’s 28 suites, each of which has a maximum capacity of two guests.
‘It is going to be a very small hotel, that is true. But the idea of a hotel dotted through different neighbourhoods of Amsterdam, with beds that all have a canal view, is amazing and really makes up for the effort,’ the brand explains in a press release.
By integrating the hotel into the fabric of the city in this way, initiatives such as Sweets Hotel and Hanare enable consumers to immerse themselves more fully in the local community.
