OMA completed the project Nhow Amsterdam RAI Hotel in the Dutch city, in the Zuidas business district, after winning the competion launched in 2014. The building includes a hotel with 650 rooms, a restaurant/bar, a live television studio and a parking. The building is 91 meters high and is made of three shifted triangular volumes, built in aluminium and filled of glazed panels.

The hotel is distributed on 19 of the 24 floors of the skyscrapers, and the lobby – from where a lift leads visitors to the top floors providing views on Amsterdam – occupies two floors. The upper space is called On Air and offers meeting and conference rooms, a broadcasting studio and lounges for guests and external visitors. On the east side, the building provides some facilities like taxi stands and the access to the parking, that counts 200 parking lots.
