Generator Amsterdam: from university to hostel

Every room has its own character

Generator Amsterdam is a hostel located in the increasingly-popular eastern part of the city and overlooks the Oosterpark. The hostel, with room for no fewer than 564 visitors, was previously a building of the University of Amsterdam and the zoological museum. All the rooms in the hostel have a private bathroom and a beautiful view of the park or garden.

The hostel has flexible, spacious common areas, each of which has its own design. The old lecture hall has been transformed into an impressive lounge and bar, the former library turned into a relaxation area for private events, and what used to be the boiler room is now an intimate bar. The individual design per room is reflected throughout the building. The original architecture has been taken into account everywhere, and existing material has been reused for new applications.

An international project

Keijsers Interiors developed a custom interior for some of the public areas, such as the reception, breakfast room, nightclub and VIP room. A special feature of this project is its strong international character; the contractor and project developer are from the Netherlands, the architect from Canada, and the client is French. Thanks to Keijsers Interiors’ international experience, we know how to respond to the different disciplines required by different countries.
