Press release: Hotel Okura Amsterdam gives seven suites a complete makeover
The five-star hotel has given the suites and The Lounge a new interior
Amsterdam, 21 September 2020, Hotel Okura Amsterdam has given seven of its suites a complete makeover. The renovation, which began in December 2019, included a complete overhaul of the design. Architect Bert Verwey was in charge of the renovation of the suites and The Lounge, creating a spacious, comfortable and serene ambience.
Bert Verwey – the same architect who redesigned the Twenty Third Bar and Ciel Bleu Restaurant in 2005 and 2015 – opted for a minimalist design in the seven suites and The Lounge, which matches the hotel’s philosophy. The design includes silk wall coverings and specially-produced carpets for the floors. The suites are decorated with prints, sculptures and oil paintings by internationally renowned artist Joseph Cals. The furniture and materials in subdued colours and texture combined with the unobtrusive lighting blend into a harmonious whole. The style is restful and modern, but also provides a sense of warmth.
Michiel Roelfsema, General Manager of Hotel Okura Amsterdam: “At Hotel Okura Amsterdam, we strive for constant improvement and innovation. In collaboration with Bert Verwey, we have successfully encompassed the calm and serenity a guest experiences when they enter the hotel in a balanced and harmonious design.”
