La Place has returned to the Kalverstraat!
The delivery of the La Place Flagship Restaurant Amsterdam took place last week. The eye-catcher of the new La Place restaurant is the Roof Garden Café on the second floor. With a lot of green plants, this is an oasis of peace high above the bustle of the city center. A unique place, in the middle of the city and yet far away from all the hustle and bustle.
For us this La Place is extra special because we were allowed to work on the Green Wall in the restaurant. Moss (Makers of Sustainable Spaces) developed the concept and design of this Greenwall, Hydrozorg Interieurbeplanting and Vincent van Tol made the hardware. Together with Philip van Traa from Moss, we have chosen an assortment of tropical plants that suit La Place. These plants are grown in our greenhouse in special trays and placed in the Green Wall.
La Place Kalverstraat has entrances at both Kalverstraat 203 and Rokin 160, so La Place has two faces. Where the 3 monumental buildings on the Rokin have remained completely authentic, a completely new building has been resurrected on the Kalverstraat. The property consists of three floors and is large and light with a glass roof.
Philip van Traa of the companies Moss and HRBS, aims to make cities greener and greener. HRBS has an interchangeable herb and vegetable concept for the catering industry so that herbs and vegetables can be served fresh on your plate. They do this in a tray which is delivered to the catering industry. The trays are placed in furniture designed by MOSS and after the harvest, the trays with harvested product are taken back for recycling. Locally grown and sustainable. Philip and his team want to promote local food production, and this can reduce emissions around food. Grown locally with the same or better taste, clean and a low footprint.
The result is really beautiful!
We wish the La Place team all the best with the renewed Flagship Restaurant!
