As a partner in the international project business, Villeroy & Boch provides bathroom system solutions. This is also the case for the De L’Europe luxury hotel in Amsterdam.
The De L’Europe Amsterdam, which is often called Amsterdam's second royal palace, lies on the picturesque bank of the Amstel, in the proximity of the city's famous museums. The historic roundel building is a real showplace. Original paintings by Dutch artists adorn the walls inside the building.
The De L’Europe, which has been a member of the Leading Hotels of the World for over 25 years, also has several restaurants and bars, including the Bord’Eau, which is decorated with two Michelin stars, and the "BiB Gourmand" Hoofdstad Brasserie. The hotel's Skins Institute, which is recognised as a Leading Spa of the World, offers an extensive wellness and beauty programme. Strict environmental standards, for example, in the scope of the Green Key Programme, an internationally recognised programme for ecological tourism, are of course observed in the De L’Europe.
The building was extensively renovated in 2010 and the 69 rooms and 42 suites were equipped with the latest comfort features. The new wing only contains suites, which are furnished as impressive replicas of paintings by Dutch artists from the nearby Rijksmuseum.
The responsible architect, Cees Dam, chose branded products from Villeroy & Boch for equipping the hotel with sanitary ware. All in all, 121 wall-mounted WCs from the Subway collection were installed, which combines a timelessly modern design with practical functionality. Matching WC seats were also fitted, which are equipped with the SoftClosing and QuickRelease comfort functions. In addition, four urinals incl. feed fittings were installed. Barrier-free accessibility requirements are met by the wheelchair-accessible O.novo Vita bathroom sink and an extended Omnia Architectura WC. 90 high-quality baths from the Nexus collection provide a luxurious bathing experience. Made of innovative Quaryl material, which consists of very fine quartz sand and top-quality sanitary acrylic, Nexus combines high-tech material with a classic design. The bathtub rim is a special eye-catcher as it matches the curved shape of the oval tub perfectly.
