Press Release
OMA, COD and NH Hotel Group won the Zuidas tender RAI Hotel

On Tuesday April 28th 2015 City of Amsterdam and RAI Amsterdam announced the winner of the tender for the RAI Hotel. The winner is the innovative concept nhow presented by NH Hotel Group. The hotel is being developed by COD and designed by OMA, founded by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas.

In June 2014 City of Amsterdam and RAI Amsterdam opened the tendering procedure for the development, realisation and exploitation of a headquarter hotel RAI. Eleven entries were submitted and each of these entries were of an exceptional quality. All parties scored high on a catering function on the top floor. The winning concept of OMA, COD and NH Hotel Group stood out because of the additional special facilities such as a television studio, gallery, sculpture garden, spa, restaurant and bar. Above all, the iconic design of the building was decisive.
...

nhow RAI Amsterdam
With its 650 rooms nhow RAI Amsterdam
will become the biggest hotel in the Benelux. The innovative design, state-of-the-art facilities and distinctive programming make a stay at nhow a unique experience. The theme “On Air” is chosen because of the focus on connectivity, innovation and media in every sense of the word.
Maarten Markus, Managing Director of NH Hotel Group, sees the arrival of nhow RAI Amsterdam as a huge asset to the more than 375 hotels constituent portfolio of the chain: “Together with our business partners we strive to enrich the Amsterdam skyline with 650 rooms, 25 floors and a 91-meter high multimedia studio. After nhow Milan, nhow Berlin and nhow Rotterdam, the iconic nhow RAI Amsterdam will be a hotspot for both business as leisure guests to enjoy excellent hospitality and gastronomic surprises “On Air” day and night.
...

Headquarter hotel
A long-cherished wish of RAI Amsterdam has become reality. General Director Hans Bakker: “RAI hotel fulfils the ambition to realise a headquarter hotel on the grounds of RAI Amsterdam. This hotel will be the centre for event planners, exhibitors and visitors of large, multi-day international events. Thanks to the iconic design of OMA and the 24-hour experience, the nhow RAI creates greater value to the RAI complex and makes the location RAI Amsterdam more attractive. Therefore we are able to strengthen our competitiveness in the international fairs and convention market and thus further enhance our spin-off towards the city of Amsterdam."

Nhow Hotels and Mr Koolhaas seem to get along pretty well. This is their second project together (the one in Rotterdam being the first). Excellent. It wouldn't even surprise me if more Koolhaas-designed Nhow Hotels follow, as Nhow has quite ambitious expansion plans.

The tower is amazing. The plaza outside is awful and will become a massive parking lot instead of a park.

Cladding looks a lot like "de Rotterdam", also by OMA.
Looks cool when you stand right in front of it. Looks like a giant bunker when you look at it from a diagonal angle.

still, the percentage of glass surface is huge.

Anyway, the status of this project should be changed in to prep.

Great design, I like OMA used the nearby advertising column as an inspiration for this intersection area. I guess it would be steel structure then and I am curious about its structure concept. Could anyone post its structure diagram here? Or where I could it? Much Thanks.
