HOTEL JAKARTA is an energy neutral building and BREEAM Excellent certified with 200 luxurious hotel rooms and a sky-bar, all offering stunning views over the river IJ. Unique for the Netherlands is its 30-m high load-bearing timber structure. For 176 of the 200 hotel rooms SeARCH developed 4-star luxury wooden prefabricated modules, all placed on site within 3 weeks. An atrium with subtropical garden is the center of the hotel. It acts as a temperature regulator in both summer and winter. The 4-star hotel houses a dynamic public space built around this central subtropical garden.
