ANNA Collection was selected as the first winner in 2023 by the international jury panel.
During the World Architecture Festival in Lisbon, ANNA Collection was chosen as Best Hotel Building of 2022, Worldwide!
In addition to taking home the Jury prize in the 2021 A+Awards’ Architecture +Small Living category, ANNA Collection was singled out for a prestigious Architizer A+ Project of the Year Award (New York). With the Project of the Year Award, Architizer honours five projects (chosen out of 5,000 projects worldwide) that champion architecture’s impact on everyday life. Past honourees include world-renowned designers and companies like Mecanoo (Francine Houben) and Zaha Hadid Architects (Patrik Schumacher).
ANNA Collection has been selected as one of the three most innovative architecture projects in the Netherlands by the prestigious Dutch Architecture Award ARC22. The jury praised the overall high standard, inventive technical solutions, refined finishes and the modular design, which reduces building time on site and allows the cabin to be easily removed leaving no tangible impact on nature.
âANNA Stay was first acknowledged by The Radical Innovation Competition in 2017. Cabin ANNA was a conceptual design by Caspar Schols, fulfilling his mother’s dream to sleep under the stars in their backyard. The esteemed Radical jury recognized this project as both a realistic and futuristic idea that would change the hospitality industry.
ANNA Collection was featured in the discovery+ series Make Yourself at Home.
