The challenge? Transforming the old Sony building in Badhoevedorp into the main building of the 4-star Corendon Village hotel in 5 months. Design and execution of all areas are almost synchronized with demolition and construction.

Corendon Hotels & Resorts Development asks Bakovic Architects to jointly develop an interior design and, with Studio Y, to provide the architectural design for the entire transformation. We also take care of the coordinating role in the architectural field and ensure that everything is carried out according to design and tight planning.

Corendon Village is Corendon’s 2nd hotel in the Netherlands. After construction and renovation, the complex consists of 3 buildings. The old Sony office will become the central building – Plaza – with communal facilities such as the reception, spa and gym. The hotel rooms will be located on floors 1 to 8. The Skybar 747 will be on the top floor.

“In an extremely short period between design and delivery – including demolition and moving in – Bakovic Architects is the communication link between the interior designer and contractor.

Although the responsibility lay in the development, work preparation and quality assessment of the interior, Bakovic Architect often went the extra mile.” – Corendon Hotels & Resorts Development
