Mecanoo completes hotel at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport

  • Comment

Mecanoo has completed this 433-room hotel next to Schipol Airport in Amsterdam

ARCHITECT’S VIEW • PROJECT DATA

The hotel includes 433 bedrooms alongside 1,700m2 of events space with 23 boardrooms and meeting rooms spread throughout the scheme’s first and second floors.

Connected to the airoprt by a covered walkway, the 40,150mhotel is arranged around an atrium with a 42m-tall glass roof which acts as the main meeting area and forms the hotel’s heart.

The building’s grey and white-clad façade features diamond-shaped windows designed to ‘emphasise the iconic appearance of the scheme’.

Architect’s view

Located at the main access roads to the airport, the hotel acts as the final chord of the staccato rhythm of the buildings along Schiphol boulevard. From its plinth, the hotel is rotated by 45 degrees. This gives the building not only momentum, but also creates a visual connection to Schiphol Boulevard, the Ceintuurbaan and the adjoining office strip. The distinctive diagonal pattern of the hotel exterior serves to emphasise the iconic appearance of the building.
