Landschapshotel - Amsterdam

Landscape design

Just outside of Amsterdam, this captivating landscape is teeming with secret gardens, a fireplace, lodges and, in the near future, a hotel. Strolling through fields of reed, visitors can discover a myriad of enchanting retreats: a whirlpool, a picnic place and a secret bench, all of which are open to the public and invite anyone to seek out their own quiet spot.


A bridge over the pond connects the hotel to a handful of private lodges, each positioned around a spacious, common fireplace. With a landscapes rich in iconic Dutch trees and vegetation, the surroundings offer a unique setting each season and allow guests to be fully immersed in nature.


Studio Appelo was responsible for the landscape design as well as the design of community building "the Fireplace: and the barn lodges.
