Seen here is the funky façade of Inntel Hotel, located directly outside the train station in Zaandam, a town in the Netherlands located about 12 minutes from Amsterdam’s city centre.

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.
