Amazing Stack House Architecture.
WAM Architecten from The Netherlands designed the outstanding Inntel Hotel in Amsterdam-Zaandam.
From the architects: “The hotel, which stands on the Provincialeweg, is the new centre’s eye-catcher. The building with 160 rooms and a conference complex will in part be constructed on a viaduct. The colossal, twelve-storey-high hotel tower, essentially square in plan, is a monumental stacking and interpretation of various green-painted house types typical of the Zaan region, ranging from a stately notary’s dwelling to worker’s cottages. ‘The Blue House’, inspired by the work Claude Monet painted at Zaandam in 1871, is the ultimate attention-grabber. The overall result is striking. The varied fenestration, broad protruding sections and bay windows, and decorative white ridge-pieces lend depth and an expressive relief to the façade.”
Love the idea and design of the facade, in such a contrast with the high end interior. Fantastic! Cheers, Dennis de Priester
