An Urban Sanctuary
Designed by BK Architects· realised by 4seasonsspa
The new and trendy W-Hotel is located at the very heart of Amsterdam, just behind the Royal Palace and Dam square. On its rooftop 4SeasonsSpa has installed WET DECK®, what is probably the longest outdoor whirlpool in the world, stretching over 25 meters! From the terrace on the 5th floor there is a stunning view from the whirlpool towards the Royal Palace and the rest of the historic city center.
4SeasonsSpa also built W AWAY Spa & Fit, the hotel's extraordinary spa situated in the former building of Kas Bank, a building that is considered a national monument. It was originally designed by F.W.M Poggenbeek in 1908 and is one of the first concrete constructions in The Netherlands. It followed the classical typology of bank buildings with vaults on the ground floor and offices above. W AWAY Spa & Fit is situated in the bank's former vault, right behind the original 4000 kg vault door. Elements from the history of the building are kept in the design of the spa. 4SeasonsSpa worked closely with BK Architects to turn their vision into a feasible, functional and extraordinary spa!
