Sluis Haveneiland

If you are looking for a hotel room with a view in Amsterdam, this is it. Located in upcoming neighbourhood IJburg, bridge house Sluis Haveneiland has the most magical view across the IJ lake.

From 2009 to 2017 the Sluis Haveneiland 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 2009: Quist Wintermans
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Contemporary
Location: Bert Haanstrakade
Waterway: IJ
Bridge Type: Lock

Because IJburg, Amsterdam’s most recent expansion area, is built on a series of artificial islands there are a large number of bridges here. Striking about this design is that the bridges on IJburg were designed not by the municipal department but independent architectural offices, including Nicholas Grimshaw, Benthem Crouwel and Meyer and Van Schooten. In addition to several bridges, the architectural firm Quist Wintermans also designed the bridge control building on Sluis Haveneiland (lock). All of the bridges and locks on IJburg were operated from the building on Bert Haanstrakade (street).

The building contained a large control panel, from which the bridgemaster had a view of the bridges and locks via video screens. Moreover, the building was equipped with a modern public address system for communicating with land and water traffic. With such technical devices, the building was designed to represent the future of bridge control.
