Concept

Design

The architects at the OMA bureau, established by Rem Koolhaas, created a design that seamlessly blends into the current RAI complex while simultaneously offering a new and modern character.

The design of nhow Amsterdam RAI was inspired by one of the most iconic features of RAI Amsterdam, the advertising column known as ‘Het Signaal’. 

OMA partner Reinier de Graaf: 

RAI Amsterdam has needed a ‘new’ urban face since the establishment of the Zuidas district. The prominent advertising column, known as ‘Het Signaal’, provided the inspiration for the new nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel which is to be both part of the new context and an expansion of RAI Amsterdam itself.

The architects from OMA also developed the design of nhow Rotterdam, which opened its doors on the Wilhelminakade in the Kop van Zuid area in 2014. The four-star hotel located in ‘De Rotterdam’ features an interior and exterior both designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas.
