This is an early Rem Koolhaas building that looks a little simplistic and dated now, thin gruel for the brain.
Unopiu Nederland design : OMA, celebrated Dutch architecture firm
According to the architects, OMA, “Byzantium adjoins one of the busiest metropolitan sites in the Netherlands on one side and on the other a quiet rustic lane next to the Vondelpark, the Zandpad. This contrast defines the theme of the hybrid building: the design tries to do justice to both conditions by using the metropolitan scale to screen the idyll.”

The Pearl Café on Westerstraat
Café de Parel was originally a typical Amsterdam ‘brown bar’ with an old-fashioned dark interior and low lighting. The traditional stained-glass windows and monumental tile tableaus create the perfect setting for the new Parel.
