Amsterdam’s Sir Albert Hotel has created a new Creative Space ideal for meetings, photo shoots, product launches and small gatherings.
The Creative Space’s innovative design is a draw for locals and guests of the Dutch capital as the multi-purpose space can be used as a co-working space for hotel guests when not booked. Flooded by natural daylight, it doesn’t look like a stuffy business room. Instead a Ping-Pong table and a corkboard wall get the creative juices flowing, and a chill-out area with sofas beckons. Knowing that any good power brainstorming session needs fuel, Sir Albert stocks the SMEG fridge full with healthy drinks, snack bars, cookies and nibbles. A projector, flat screen with Apple TV are provided, to which a mobile phone, MacBook or iPod can be wirelessly connected.
A one-time diamond factory, Sir Albert Hotel’s industrial past has been buffed by warm, welcoming interiors that allude to a sophisticated world traveler. Award winning architects from BK Architecture were responsible for the transformation, carefully preserving the high ceilings and large windows, and using sustainable and energy efficient technology in the process. Set in the lively De Pijp district, the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam – a melting pot of diverse cuisines, hopping bars and a strong café culture – Sir Albert Hotel is more akin to a stay in a private city residence than a hotel. A well-stocked library and pleasant fireplace greet guests of the 90-room boutique hotel, while the IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar with a private terrace offers sweeping views of the city. Italian furniture manufacturers like Maxalto, Moroso and Ceccotti sit alongside limited edition works by standout Dutch designers such as Piet Hein Eek and Joy Erven.
