At the head of Java island, situated at the IJ at Amsterdam, the building of Hotel Jakarta will start in April 2016. The winning design of architectural office SeArch is characterized by a different concept as regards architecture, building techniques and sustainability.
The hotel is designed as a public building with a high level of transparency. Over 12,500 m² floor space hosting a restaurant, sky bar, conference room, wellness & fitness room, swimming pool, parc and underground car park. The facilities are situated around a central subtropical garden which is accessible to the public. The inner garden thus forms an extension of the other inner gardens on Java Island.
Scheuten Absoluut Glastechniek supplies the engineering, delivery and installation of a large part of the outside façade glazing among which the structural glazing façade, aluminium window frames, sliding sash as well as the balustrades and floor glazing inside. The sustainable character of the hotel is underligned by the application of over 700 m² Scheuten Optisol® BIPV-solar panels and over 2400 m² Scheuten Trisolide® Brilliant® triple insulating glass in the façade. The Trisolide® triple insulating glass has a U-value of only 0,6W/m2K and a total energy transmission of about 37%.
The building is expected to be put into use by WestCord Hotels by the end of 2017.
