Architecture & History

From 1936 to 2017 the Kinkerbrug bridge house accommodated the city’s bridge keepers. In 2017 the bridge house started a new chapter as one of 28 suites for SWEETS hotel.

Architect 1936: Pieter Lodewijk Kramer
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Amsterdam School
Location: Kinkerstraat
Waterway: Kostverlorenvaart
Bridge Type: Bascule Bridge

The bridge house at the Kinkerbrug (bridge) dates from 1936 and is typical of Pieter Lodewijk Kramer’s work. He positioned the bridge house in the ‘elbow’ of the bridge and he projected the white window frames from the brickwork, extending them around the corners. The windows are horizontal in shape on both the north and south sides, so that the bridge keeper had a view of the bridge to the left and of the Kostverlorenvaart (canal) to the right.
