Hotel Zenden is located within three monumental town houses near the river Maas in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The hotel's history begins in the late sixties, and originally contained only a pool for swimming lessons. Over the years other functions such as hotel rooms and a Judo school were implemented into the program. Upon the facilities reaching spatial limits, a renovation and reorganisation of the program was needed. During the renovation, the scattered program was re-crystallized into an iconographic and integrated whole. Newly created openings in the hotel's walls allow for views between all areas of the new program, as well to as the exterior. The renovation led to an abstraction of the structure in both plan and section, not least because all ceilings heights were kept to a maximum. The resulting interior sculpture is completely clad in white, while the exterior inversions are painted anthracite. New program elements were placed if and where necessary.
