A Self-Sustaining Subtropical Oasis in Amsterdam
Entering Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam on Java-eiland is like walking into a vertical oasis. The five-story glass and bamboo wood structure is filled with subtropical plants, meters high palms, and botanical gardens inspired by Java Island. The hotel is all about the Indonesian-Amsterdam connection, and most centrally, sustainability in every element. Rainwater is stored in the property, solar cells power the space, underground thermal energy storage is utilized, and its Atrium and high windows maximize natural light.
