Pleated blinds for an exclusive landmark on the former Netherlands Dock and Shipbuilding Company terrain in Amsterdam

The Building

The Faralda Crane Hotel is an ambitious project that gave the monumental Crane nr 13 of the Netherlands Dock and Shipbuilding company a new purpose. The former crane has been completely restored to serve as a exclusive and luxurious three suite hotel.

The Requirement

As the original design of the crane has not been to serve as a luxurious hotel and the monumental exterior character could not be altered, the developers had to find a solution to control heat and glare using indoor solar shading.

The Solution

Verosol original pleated blinds were used to control heat, glare and retain the magnificent view from the crane in all three suites. The metallised fabric reflects light; heat doesn't enter and therefore creates the required visual and thermal comfort
