The Unbound Amsterdam

Animated landscape for a luscious city escape in the ‘Tuinen van West’

The Unbound Amsterdam is an adventurous city escape in the ‘Tuinen van West’ at the edge of Amsterdam. A natural wilderness, programmed with wellness facilities, giving room to luxurious lodges and an exclusive hotel.

Felixx created a lush natural environment, by diversifying the topography: a pond, wetlands and hills. This generates conditions for diverse types of vegetation, organically structuring the area in different rooms. The adventurous site is equipped for various uses, entertaining guests and visitors.

A large tree marks the entrance that leads to the hotel, situated next to a small lake. Sauna and canoeing facilities are located in the water, separated by a bridge which connects the hotel to the lodge forest. Different tiny houses are centered around a community building, providing optimal privacy on the individual terraces. The park continues into the wellness forest, where we find the amphitheatre and an elevated yoga field.

A set of pathways connects the whole area and leads to the event field. This intimate and enclosed location is suitable for weddings or temporary festivals. The adjacent playing area is an exciting site filled with play elements for the younger visitors. The vegetable garden offers an orchard experience and provides healthy food for the hotel restaurant.
