Architects Reiters complete full interior redesign of historic Dutch castle

Dutch architects Reiters reimagining of the Vaeshartelt hotel in Maastricht involved a complete rebranding of the estate, including a sublime set of meeting rooms combining colour with historic elements.

The Vaeshartelt estate is a luxurious historical property located on the northern border of Maastricht, Netherlands. Originally built as a medieval castle, the estate has changed hands many times over the centuries but now operates as a ‘budget boutique hotel’, featuring 83 rooms and three restaurants, as well as several social spaces and a bar. Not only is it a popular weekend retreat, but the hotel is also an in-demand business venue, with 15 meeting rooms available for a range of corporate gatherings.

 

Because of its size and varied history, the interior design of the estate had become very disjointed, as different owners redesigned different sections of the property on separate occasions. Interior design firm Reiters were brought in to breathe new life into the hotel, creating a unified identity that not only spoke of the estate's heritage but also of luxury and modern comforts.

The Meeting Rooms

Where the strategic use of colour is most striking is in the meeting rooms, a suite of 15 individual locations, each with its own colour and identity. these distinct tones are implemented in the panelling, carpets and upholstery as well as the furniture in the rooms.

 

RBM Noor chairs, supplied by furniture dealer Holmris, feature exclusively throughout the meeting rooms, chosen for their comfort, design and wide variety of colour options. The RBM Noor chairs are upholstered with in Gabriel fabric Fame,in a range of tones colour matched to the individual room palettes to create a ‘ton-sur-ton’ effect.

 

Speaking about the overall design of the hotel, Reiters say: “The versatile colour palette has been translated into the interior without detracting from the existing historical elements. Old and new literally come together as a result and provide an exciting contrast that can be felt throughout the hotel. All spaces have their own character, which through smart design choices together form a whole. For example, patterns return and materials and colours repeat in different rooms, creating a strong visual connection.”
