The challenge? Transform the former showroom on the top floor of the old Sony building into a cosmopolitan place where hotel guests and travelers from all over the world come together. Bakovic Architects takes care of the interior design and supervises the renovation on an architectural level.

Skybar 747 is located on the 9th floor of the old Sony building and is part of Plaza: the main building of Corendon Village. Hotel and airport visitors have a beautiful panoramic view of the aircraft taking off and landing and Amsterdam. Previously, this “glass room” showcased the latest technological advancements from Sony.

Boeing 747

In the garden of Corendon Village is a Boeing 747 in which you can visit an exhibition. Afterwards, you can spot planes from the sky bar that is shaped like a 747 wing. In the lounge are loveseats shaped like a Boeing nose.

New future destination?

Outside the elevator shaft in the middle of the room, this “glass” space is free of partitions. This makes the space freely divisible as a bar or restaurant and ideal for later setting up, for example, an exhibition space, spa or luxury penthouse.

Which Spaces?

  • winglet bar
  • stage with dj booth
  • reception desk
  • panorama elevator with “flight experience”
  • rooftop terrace

“We want to offer our guests a place that is an extension of the Boeing 747 in our garden. A kind of “flight experience”, which has been translated by Bakovic Architects into a special design of the bar. ”
