The Fletcher hotel is a new landmark for the city of Amsterdam. The 60-meter-high hotel has a compact floor plan with a diameter of only 24 meters, resulting in a slim silhouette along the A2 to Amsterdam Southeast. The limited space is used as efficiently as possible. The lobby and coffee corner are on the ground floor. 120 rooms encircle the staircase and lifts in the heart of the hotel. On the 16th floor, there are 5 meeting rooms that can be linked together. The sky lounge is on the top (18th) floor and the restaurant is on the floor below. Both offer wide, impressive views over Amsterdam.
Parking spaces on the ground floor are hidden under a roof that is covered in vegetation so that it blends into the green surroundings. There is additional underground parking for 60 cars. The application of a thermal storage system and very high insulation (among other things) has helped the hotel earn a GreenCalc B certification.
A façade made entirely of glass shields the massive outer wall and, in combination with the round windows, makes the building distinctive, independent, and transparent to the environment. The architecture of the opposite food strip is reflected in the circular motif. The color blue gives the hotel a striking appearance and simultaneously creates a powerful interaction with the sky. The ring-shaped patterns in blues on the laminated glass create depth. Through the windows and the light on the façade, the building is illuminated at night. The hotel is distinctly visible and identifiable to the environment, even after sunset.
