Grand metamorphosis of The Grand interior

Grand metamorphosis of an exclusive 5-star hotel

One of the loveliest and most luxurious hotels in the Netherlands is situated on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal in the heart of Amsterdam: Sofitel Amsterdam The Grand. As exclusive and comfortable as today's hotel is, as special and varied is the building's history. The interior of The Grand was completely rebuilt in 2008, and Gielissen had an important share of that.

Interior rebuilding

Gielissen took on a significant part of the interior rebuilding. In the lobby, for instance, we realized four illuminated reception & check-in desks and VIP check-in counters in alabaster. We provided the classic library with all the wall panelling (inlaid with leather) and various pieces of furniture. In the restaurant we were responsible, apart from the interior and fixed furniture elements, for the entrance arch, glass walls, parquet flooring, ceilings and for the Perspex replicas of the Karel Appel wall painting in the foyer.

Special attention

Special attention was needed for the buffets, the wine cabinet, the illuminated Cocktail Bar and Raw Bar of curved corian and Caesar Stone (extremely exclusive interior materials). In those bars we also installed the LED lighting and the heating and cooling systems. At the moment we're busy furnishing the six comfort suites and also expect to handle the apartments, the Spa & Fitness wellness center and the meeting rooms this year.
