Contemporary Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam

Italian designer Piero Lissoni has completed the Conservatorium Hotel. The chic hotel can be found in Amsterdam.

According to the architects: “The contemporary Amsterdam hotel occupies the famous site of the former Sweelinck music conservatorium. Originally built at the end of the 19th-century by the renowned Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel, and named as the Rijkspostspaarbank Building. The construction heralded an urban regeneration of the Museumplein, a previous brown field site. Knuttel was praised for his ability to fuse simplicity and functionality, and the award-winning Milan-based furniture and interior designer Piero Lissoni has embraced this tradition through the reincarnation of this contemporary Amsterdam hotel a century later.”

Lissoni’s is known for his austere lines, demure fabrics and use of grey that is occasionally dotted by the appearance of bright accents, Lissoni is considered by some as one of the most exciting contemporary Italian designers. His designs are a hybrid of modernist and contemporary chic that contrast playfully with the ongoing bath of natural daylight throughout the building’s airy spaces. Furniture from leading Italian manufactures such as Living Divani, Kartell and Cassina sit prominently in all communal spaces while accent pieces such as vintage Asian rugs provide a sense familiar comfort.
