Architecture & History

From 1969 to 2017 the Meeuwenpleinbrug 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 1969: Dirk Sterenberg
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Structuralism
Location: Johan van Hasseltweg
Waterway: North Holland Canal
Bridge Type: Drawbridge

The Meeuwenpleinbrug (bridge) over the North Holland Canal was built in 1969, designed by Dirk Sterenberg, and is situated near the northern entrance of the IJ Tunnel. The Meeuwenpleinbrug bridge house can be regarded as a simpler variant of the Hortusbrug bridge house in the old part of the city. On the south side the former bridge control office was connected to the road via a staircase.
