Amstel Botel Hotel Amsterdam
The BOTEL is perhaps one of the most iconic hostels in Amsterdam. This floating piece of Amsterdam is an accessible and affordable accommodation for many Amsterdam tourists. Owner Sandra Chedi approached Lensvelt for the redesign of the public spaces of her boat. The dated appearance of the boat was replaced by a timeless interior designed by JanPaul Scholtmeijer of JPS Architects. JanPaul chose to apply a mix of 100% Dutch Design and design produced in the Netherlands by, among others, WH Gispen, Atelier van Lieshout, & Prast & Hooft executed in a very colorful scheme. In this way the space retained its accessible appearance, but they managed to surprise with sleek design and special objects such as the Cloud Table.
