The project is led by Elida Mosquera and Jerome Picard from local, a new Bergen-Paris based architecture and urbanism studio.
This hotel is launched by childhoods friends Zetsia Lobo, Franton Maria, Yu-Meng Braumuller, dreaming of their own unique place in a thriving Rotterdam. “We wanted a place with coffee, lunch and a simple dinner. Organic, unlike any other, with Rotterdam products and for vegans and burger lovers”, says Zetsia. “We love Scandinavian design, but we all grew up in Curaçao, so color is important to us. We wanted the coolness, but be playful and colorful at the same time”, they add.
The hotel has 15 rooms and 4 different sizes. It offers space for single travelers and families. The ground floor is connected to one of Rotterdam’s most lively streets with reception and bar designed as a communal kitchen, with a floating ´cloud´ terrace in cork to seat and bringing lots of natural light down to the basement restaurant.
The rooms combine comfort and convenience with bespoke design, in an optimally utilized space. The tatami style
cork and bamboo alcoves, custom fitted to the light and airy design of the rooms, turn our classic inner-city building into an oasis of tranquility. The room quite literally wraps itself around you like a comfy blanket, creating your own peaceful nook in the city.
