Amstel Hotel, Amsterdam

The Amstel hotel is the most prestigious hotel in The Netherlands, it is well-known all over the world and has a history of over 150 years.

Celebrities like the Rolling Stones, U2 and Rihanna used the hotel as their home base during their stays in the Netherlands. Then there are also royals from around the world who gladly enjoy the many facilities of the Amstel hotel.

During the restoration of exactly 1 year and 1 day, the complete exterior and the roof have been fully restored. This process required many years of preparation and was carried out with the utmost care. All original colours were reapplied and a grand total of 300 elements, ornaments and statues were renewed. The restoration was carried out by the Leidens Burgy Bouwbedrijf, a modern family company that specializes in restoration work on buildings.

The Light Design comes from the Dutch designers Lichtconsult and Hans Wolff & Partners. Besides this design, they also tended to the specifications of the fixtures, which had been fully fitted to the project. Furthermore, they also guided the complete process.

CLS was responsible for the design and the fabrication of the special fixtures. For this, we have used a number of customized variants of the well-known REVO series. The fixtures were anodized in a special colour, the mounts were custom-built to the right size, optics with several angular apertures were fitted into 1 fixture and even special DMX electronics were designed for the REVO Micro.

All fixtures can be individually controlled and are provided with customized Tunable white LED modules with a range of 1800 – 3000 Kelvin. The REVO Inground DMX was even created for this specific project and is now available as one of our regular fixtures.

The result shows true beauty and accentuates the grandeur of the building in a sublime way.

We would like to thank all the parties involved for their trust in CLS and would like to invite you too to challenge us for a new illustrious project.
