Over forty designers and artists worked on the interior. Some were chosen to create work to reflect on the building’s history and to add a new layer. In other cases, work was selected to fit  with our vision of transparent, simple luxury.


MVRDV was founded in 1993 by Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries in Rotterdam. Still a young agency at the time, in 2004 they were approached by our artistic director, Suzanne Oxenaar to transform Lloyd Hotel. MVRDV is now a 70-strong studio with international projects and global acclaim.
