This hotel in Amsterdam is the largest Holiday Inn Express in Europa. It is located on the northern shore of the IJ-lake, is 45 meters high, consists of 2 towers, has 14 floors and 438 rooms and a magnificent view of Amsterdam. The almost 11.000m2 of cladding were anodised by Alumet in the colour AluGold03. Anodised aluminium has multiple advantages. It is very durable and corrosion resitant. Colours are UV resitant thus colourfast. Anodised aluminium retains its metal character and can easily be cleaned. It is part of the circular economy as it can be 100% recycled and therefore re-used.
