Hyatt Regency Spinoza Hotel, Amsterdam
|Opdrachtgever:||Van Dongen–Koschuch Architects and Planners|
|Product:||façade panels, glazed in golden yellow and various shades of green|
The main challenge in designing the new hotel, according to Van Dongen-Koschuch, was finding an idiom that would do justice to the history and complexity of the location. On architectural level, the agency achieved this by preserving the three historic façades and incorporating them into the new structure. This has been done in each of the three original façades in a special way, for example by adding a green facade or forward-looking window frames. The façades of the new building distinguish themselfs through the Koninklijke Tichelaar glazed ceramic façade panels in the colors golden yellow and various shades of green and by the striking windows.
