designed by milan-based interior architect piero lissoni, the ‘conservatorium hotel‘ has recently opens its doors to guests in the historic museum district of amsterdam, the netherlands. adjoined to the 19th century sweelinck music conservatorium by dutch architect daniel knuttel, the venue includes 129 luxury guest rooms, meeting spaces, well-being spa and restaurants and bars of diverse atmospheres. a full-height glazed atrium meets the original masonry exterior, while a corten steel stair and multiple catwalks accentuate their meeting points through arched windows and portals within the brick façade.

within the existing building, eight levels of suites are configured with a duplex layout, ranging in size from 30 to 170 square meters. leading to the lofted bedrooms, open-riser steel stairs and railings formed from glass panes continue the clean lines found within the entry lobby. throughout the interior, vintage and cultural elements are found amidst modern amenities.

representing the four elements of life, water, earth, wind and fire, the akasha well-being spa offers visitors a holistic lifestyle during their transient stay. the space offers a journey during the individual’s experience of balance and transformation.
