The concept of the Canal House has been to build a luxury boutique hotel which offers all the service you expect from a five star plus hotel combined with the welcoming and warm feeling you get from a home. The aim was to create a true home away from home, in a house which you could use nearly as if it would be your own. Next to the individual rooms the guests have the opportunity to stay in the living room, the parlor room with a house bar, the garden and even in the kitchen according to their needs and mood.

The Canal House is situated in an old Canal House in the centre of Amsterdam, in which most of the old ornaments, floor finishes and chimneys still exist. In order to underline the concept and therefore to keep the character of an old Canal House in a contemporary way, all ornaments were kept but painted black. This made it possible to remain all the opulence of the old times but nevertheless create a contemporary environment.

This abstraction of the ornament is also visible in the rooms. The water jar and bowl placed of ancient times has been reinvented. Bathroom and bedroom merge in to one united experience by placing the bathtub and the double vanity in the bedroom. ‘Bedzone’ and ‘bathzone’ are only separated by a full height mirror. The toilet cubicle is located in the backwall of the room and is accessible from the ‘bathzone’ to guarantee privacy.
