Design and Architecture

One of the most beautifully designed hotels in Amsterdam, the Conservatorium is on the site formerly occupied by the city’s Sweelinck Music Conservatorium. Originally built as the Rijkspostspaar bank at the end of the 19th century, the building was conceived by the renowned Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel. It heralded the regeneration of the Museumplein, an area previously derelict.

Knuttel was praised for his ability to fuse simplicity and functionality and the award-winning Milan-based designer and architect Piero Lissoni has embraced this tradition through the reincarnation of this spectacular building 100 years later.

Known for his austere lines, demure fabrics and shades of grey with occasional bright accents, Lissoni is considered one of the most prominent and exciting contemporary Italian designers and architects. His clean designs are a hybrid of modernist and contemporary chic and contrast playfully with natural daylight throughout the building's 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 of familiar comfort and cement the Conservatorium as one of the best designed hotels in Amsterdam.
