IVANKA part of the W Amsterdam Hotel’s bold design
IVANKA, the leading architectural designer concrete brand renowned for its progressive design and technological solutions with concrete was involved and worked in close connection with the interior architects of W Hotels Worldwide in Amsterdam, member of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
From the beginning IVANKA was responsible for the development of the most unique surface designs and highly customized solutions for all 172 guest rooms, suites and the public spaces.
W Hotels, as a contemporary, design-led luxury lifestyle brand chose IVANKA for developing and manufacturing sculptural tactility of hexagonal three dimensional concrete tiles on entire walls in the public spaces, timeless robustness of multifunctional concrete vanity-shower-desk units (or vanity-shower „islands”) for all guest rooms and suites and even the detail of concrete soap trays with the highest customization.
W services mentality: Whatever/Whenever and the IVANKA attitude: Impossible doesn’t exist was a perfect match when providing a 360-degree service. Turnkey construction included design, development, innovation and engeneering services, prototyping, manufacturing, installing, and as the main contractor of steel, glass and corian works, IVANKA - providing project management - coordinated the different workflows.
Located in the epicenter of Amsterdam’s vibrant social scene, the 172-room hotel building used to house the former Telephone Exchange. W Amsterdam was designed by Office WINHOV and Baranowitz Kronenberg Architects, who collaborated with local designers and IVANKA to refresh the historic buildings with contemporary features inspired by their storied past.
