  1. Wow! so amazing photos and beautiful architecture design, i really like the design so much.

  2. i like how it looks like houses upside down on top of each other, as well as the waterfall

  3. This looks like something from a fairy tale. It would be awesome to live here.

  4. I really like the design and how it looks 2D. I'd like to see the inside.

  5. I like how the inntel hotel looks like lots of small houses put together.

  6. The design of the hotel finds it inspiration in the old and orginal Zaanse homes. It is quite inpressive to see this building, but it just doesn't fit with the rest of Zaandam her city centre. You should probaply see it yourself. Gorgeous pictures though!

  7. Stunning color scheme. I'm very impressed by the water detail surrounding the building. It's a beautiful touch. I have to say, the photographs are taken from an amazing angle. Thanks for this.

  8. am i the only one who thinks it is really ugly and probably not even could be considered as architecture?

  9. I'm kinda confused as to whether I like it or not... If there's anything I really like about it are the colors... they're wonderful! As for the design, well, I'm very much tempted to say that this one is something I would expect seeing in some children's books, in a fairy tale probably. The way I see it is it looks like a bunch of houses thrown into a (neat) heap. But then, I wouldn't call it ugly... weird yes (and very much so), but not ugly.
