Overtoomsesluis

Squeezed in between two large green parks and many cafés, restaurants and shops, this exceptionally cosy bridge house is the perfect starting point to experience Amsterdam like a local. Get a sense of Amsterdam’s history from this 1940s tiny house in ‘Late Amsterdam School’ style, and cuddle up in the snug alcove bed – a peaceful retreat in the midst of the city’s daily rush.

Architecture & History

From 1947 to 2017, bridge house Overtoomsesluis accommodated Amsterdam’s bridge keepers. In 2017, the bridge house started a new chapter as one of SWEETS hotel’s 28 hotel rooms. As with every SWEET, Overtoomsesluis’s interior is inspired by its architectural history.

Architect 1947: Piet Kramer
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Late Amsterdam School
Location: Overtoom
Waterway: Kostverlorenvaart
Bridge Type: Bascule Bridge

The Overtoomsesluisbrug at the end of Overtoom was originally a lock. When the lock was relocated, a movable bascule bridge was built here. Piet Kramer designed the bridge in 1942 but it was built a few years later in 1947. Although the bridge control building here is in many ways typical of Kramer’s work, it lacks the imaginative qualities that characterized his earlier designs, due to the constraints of the post-war economy. The vertical window frames with slender glazing bars and the concrete border underneath the roof lend the building a functional and formal expression. A canopy projects on the west side, similar to the projecting roof in bridge houses Van Hallbrug and Kinkerbrug, sheltered the bridgemaster from the elements.
