citizenM Amsterdam Amstel

The seventeenth hotel of citizenM has recently opened in the historic city center of Amsterdam and goes by the name citizenM Amstel. It is the third hotel of citizenM in Amsterdam and is located on the Sarphatistraat near the Amstel. Much of the hotel buildings of citizenM are modularly build, but this was not the case for this building. This hotel is located in the building of a former bank dating from 1928. With its 88 guest rooms, two meeting rooms, a bar and canteenM it is a large hotel compared to Amsterdam standards.

The citizenM hotels all have the best locations all over the world. In a lot of metropoles, guests can count on a certain feeling of coming home when they arrive in one of the hotels of citizenM. In order to bring this feeling to all their guest, each and every hotel must meet a certain standard when it comes to appearance and interior. Therefore, is it so important to offer the same experience in every guest room. In this hotel, specifically, the modern style of citizenM has been combined with the historical aspects of the former bank building. This is where TDE-lighttech faced a challenge. As this was a non-modularly built hotel, all guest rooms have different dimensions. The importance of good work preparation was therefore clearly highlighted within this project.

When it comes to the appearance of a hotel it is no surprise that lighting plays a crucial role. TDE-lighttech has already supplied a lot of lighting for many hotels of citizenM and understands that lighting is one of the most important aspects in creating the right atmosphere. For this amazing hotel TDE-lighttech supplied the lighting and lighting control system for the front of house areas and all of the lighting for all of the guest rooms. Among others, LED modules with a single color and multi-colour (RGB and tunable white), LED strips, LED downlights and spotlights are used within this hotel. The lighting in the front of house areas is controlled by Pharos Architectural Controls, which makes it possible to monitor, control and update the lighting externally. For controlling the lighting in the guest rooms, TDE-lighttech manufactured and supplied the 24VDC 16-channel LED Drivers. TDE-lighttech also supplied the RFID card readers used for the guest rooms access control system. 

TDE-lighttech is proud that it was able to contribute to this fantastic hotel located in the hometown of the architect concrete architects and citizenM itself. Because the lighting helps to combine the modern style of citizenM with the historic aspects of the building in a beautiful way, the result is one of a kind.
