The most prestigious hotel in The Netherlands, Amstel Hotel well-known all over the world and home to many celebrities and royals gets a complete refurbishment.
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 and guiding the entire process.
CLS was responsible for the design and the fabrication of the special armatures. CLS used a number of customised variants of the well-known REVO series. The fixtures were anodised 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 are individually controlled by the Pharos LPC 1, RIO D and a TPS controller resulting in true beauty emphasising the building in a sublime way. Pharos was chosen to bring back the complexity of controlling such a big façade to the simplicity of the slick user interface that the TPS has all at the touch of a button.
Many celebrities like Rihanna, U2 and the Rolling Stones and Royals from all around the world have enjoyed the luxury and facilities of the grande hotel.
The restoration took exactly 1 year and 1 day to complete the refurbishment of the exterior and roof of the hotel, with process preparation all aspects of the project and revamp were 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 specialises in restoration work on buildings.
