Flowerbed Hotel will be located next to the main entrance of the future Bloomin’ Holland theme park and business center in Aalsmeer. The building is composed of a series of stacked volumes inside a greenhouse. The volumes hold the program of 280 rooms with a floral theme, 1.600m2 conference center, 550m2 fitness center and spa, 2.100m2 flower beds, 1.100m2 services and 140 parking spaces. The stacking of volumes underneath the greenhouse shell results in a diverse and spacious lobby with a public flower garden.
The lobby is divided into three zones: a public zone for day visitors, a more private zone for hotel guests and a mixed zone. All areas are connected through a semi-public route. The hotel aims for business travellers as well as tourists and offers services from conference center to souvenir shops and a spa and fitness center.
The building will also feature sun collectors, windmills and underground warm and cool storage resulting in an excellent energy performance despite the glass hood.
