SWEETS hotel transforms Amsterdam’s former bridge houses

A Creative Pool project by SWEETS Hotel (Netherlands)

SWEETS hotel is a new hotel that is dotted across Amsterdam in 28 different bridge houses, built along and on Amsterdam’s canals between 1673 and 2009, each one designed in the architectural style of its building period. Due to the centralization of bridge control, the bridge houses lost their original purpose of working space for Amsterdam’s bridge keepers. The hotel reuses this industrial heritage by transforming the bridge houses into stand-alone suites.
