Picture of the Day: The Stacked House Hotel in Zaandam
THE STACKED HOUSE
HOTEL IN ZAANDAM
The structure is built up from a varied stacking of almost 70 individual little houses, executed in four shades of the traditional green colour of the Zaan region. In the hotel’s façade, five distinct types of Zaan houses can be found, from labourers’ cottages to town houses. A striking exception is the blue corner piece, a reference to the blue house, which was the subject of a painting by the French artist Claude Monnet (1840-1926) during his stay in the Zaan region.
The 4 star hotel has 160 rooms and suites. Visit their official website for more information.
