CASE: COLLEGE-HOTEL, Development, Interior - Economy...


The college hotel was designed as a hotel, which will enable students to learn about the real situations that may arise in it. This hotel is an initiative of the MOC (Local Educational Center) in Amsterdam. The founder of the college hotel, J. Rowan Ankersmit, is both the hotel manager and the manager of the MOC in Amsterdam. The MOC provides educational services in the field of hospitality, tourism, bakery, personal hygiene, maintenance and safety for the preparation of preparatory secondary vocational education and full secondary vocational education, as well as the training of specialists for the bachelor's degree.

The most important argument for the opening of a college hotel is the presence of a big difference between theory and practice among students who receive a diploma by profession, which in practice did not have time to master. This gave impetus to create not just a hotel that will function as a school, but a hotel in the city center that will occupy a certain place in the hospitality industry in the hotel business. The main idea is that students will learn in practice, combined with traditional, conventional hospitality methods. 80% of services will be provided by students, while professionals of Stein Corp will provide the remaining 20%. The development of the situation in the time interval can be seen below.

The concept is based on the following.
