Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Zaandam | Zaandam, Netherlands
Not since the 1920 unveiling of Amsterdam's Het Schip—an Expressionistic brick building designed to resemble the silhouette of a ship—has Dutch architecture been this much fun. From the imaginative minds at Delft firm WAM, the property is composed of nearly 70 timber and clapboard façades layered onto a concrete shell. The effect brings to mind a 12-story Rubik's Cube. But rest assured, the leather-wrapped platform beds, Luceplan lighting, and Alessi bathroom fixtures keep the venture from becoming too Vegas. Better yet, the inn represents the first phase of a redevelopment project that will give the river city a calling card.
