On the site of the former Emma Children’s Hospital on the Sarphatistraat in Amsterdam city centre, the international five-star Hyatt Regency Spinoza Hotel is being realised.
The hotel consists 7 floors including an underground parking garage with a capacity of 40 parking spaces.
The existing buildings, dating from the end of the 19th century, have been mostly demolished to permit the construction, and in the process of this the facades of the old hospital have been integrated within the new design.
Van Rossum is the main structural engineer on the project, from preliminary design to completion. We have also carried out a study of the demolition of existing buildings in the complex inner city area of Amsterdam. In the end we drew up a plan in which the existing facades of some of the old buildings could be preserved.
An exceptionally slender main supporting structure was designed with minimum thickness of floors, in order to realise the greatest possible free story height.
