Original tram tracks line the floors of this recently opened restaurant in Amsterdam. A pitched roof overhead with its steel structure retained, a masonry wall on one side and large soaring windows flanking the other, this lofty dining space was originally a tram station dating back to 1902. Earlier this year, Hotel De Hallen opened here and local firm Framework Studio decided to preserve the industrial aesthetic in the Meat West restaurant within. The elongated railway corridor layout is now dotted with vintage Danish tables and chairs along the center and more intimate, curved concrete seating on the sides, with globe-like lighting fixtures and steel railing partitions adding a sense of repetitive rhythm.
