Fresh off the popularity of the townhouse they designed and showed off at last year’s Design Miami, Droog has once again teamed with the Tokyo-based architecture firm Atelier Bow-Wow to create a new hotel in Amsterdam, just a short walk down the street from their storefront there. The hotel will be a members-only setup (see: expensive), but will also include a restaurant and an exhibition space. They promise more details soon, but in the interim, here’s what they’re offering:
Leaving the canal-facing front facade intact, Atelier Bow-Wow created an intricate inner courtyard facade inspired by Amsterdam’s historic architecture. The hotel restaurant will host new concept dinners by invited designers and chefs, improvising with local market left-overs and practicing the act of eating slowly yet attentively. The street level will house an on-going program of Droog exhibitions and events.
