This building in Amsterdam was built in the 1920’s as a hotel for emigrants, later becoming a prison, before the proposal to reinstate it as a hotel. In order to open up the claustrophobic interior and create a communal area for guests, a void was carved through the volume, the so-called Cultural Embassy. Each of the 120 guest rooms is unique, meaning the hotel appeals to a wide range of guests in a series of 0 to 5 star hotel rooms.
