Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam By Italian Designer Piero Lissoni | Hotel Design

Piero Lisssoni, one of Italy’s well known designers, designed the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam. The steel structure, the volumes, lovely furniture, and color scheme are what make the design of this hotel so spectacular. Sleek and sexy are what best describe every part of this beautiful structure.

Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam occupies the famous site of Amsterdam’s former Sweelinck music conservatorium. Originally built at the end of the 19th Century and conceived by the renowned Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel as the Rijkspostspaarbank Building, the construction heralded an urban regeneration of the Museumplein, an area which had been left previously derelict. Knuttel was praised for his ability to fuse simplicity and functionality, and the award-winning Milan-based furniture and interiors designer Piero Lissoni has embraced this tradition through the re-incarnation of this spectacular building 100I years later.

Against the backdrop of the building’s incredibly rich history, the hotel has been consistently imbued with Lissoni’s signature style. Known for his austere lines, demure fabrics and shades of grey that are occasionally dotted by the appearance of bright accents, Lissoni is considered one of the most prominent and exciting contemporary Italian designers. His clean designs are a hybrid of modernist and contemporary chic and contrast playfully with the on-going 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.





Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam, the eagerly anticipated high-end luxury lifestyle hotel, is located in the museum and fashion district of Amsterdam. The hotel offers guests an experience that is at once locally-oriented and world-class, all under the roof of a building with unique heritage. Guests will be offered unique access to the best of the local culture alongside amenities, service and design that compete at the highest level on a global stage.

An integral pillar of the vision of the Conservatorium Hotel is the creation of restaurant and bar areas that will not just appeal to hotel guests but will become destinations in their own right for locals and international visitors, thereby imbuing the hotel with a wider responsibility in the local culture. All dining venues at the Conservatorium Hotel are under the helm of celebrated Dutch-chef, Schilo van Coevorden, whose style of food has continuously evolved throughout the years, adapting and adopting traditions from all over the world while retaining the virtues of simplicity and focus on locality and seasonality.

The Conservatorium Hotel offers world leading spa and gym facilities at Akasha – its 1000 sqm Holistic Wellbeing Center including an exclusive indoor swimming pool, a signature spa, cutting-edge gym and a yoga studio.
Offering a place where mind, body and soul rebalance, and where guests can release everyday tensions and rediscover the essence of wellbeing.
The spa features exclusive Watsu pool hydro-treatments, special hammam treatments and signature therapies using the finest local and international products.

  4. I am of the personal opinion that architects and interior designer alike should keep one important thing in their minds at all times. That is the importance of detailing. it is the small things that make perfection, but perfection is no small thing.
