FRONT OF THE LINE

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE ESCAPE -

Si­t­u­ated right by Am­s­ter­dam’s Mu­se­umplein, the Con­ser­va­to­rium ho­tel dates back to the 19th cen­tury, but has been up­dated for the mod­ern trav­eller, thanks to a makeover by Mi­lan-based ar­chi­tect Piero Lis­soni. The her­itage site re­mains, up­graded with the ad­di­tion of a glass atrium and in­te­rior court­yard, and an ex­pan­sive, light-filled lobby where fur­ni­ture from the likes of Kartell and Cassina sit along­side a cu­ra­tion of stylish tomes. The edit ex­tends to the din­ing and well­ness op­tions: At Taiko, dishes are cre­ated us­ing Hida beef reared in Eu­rope; and the Akasha Holis­tic Well­be­ing Cen­tre is a sanc­tu­ary where the strains of sight­see­ing can be soothed.
