The Amstelkwartier Hotel is a prime example of a building where construction affects the output of the building. We’re talking about the most sustainable hotel in Europe. That is why sustainability is radically maintained throughout all parts of the building. The division between constructive support structures and functionality in particular is crucial in this case.
Our knowledge of stability and materials plays a large role in this. The key points involved are core measurements, as well as how the building’s strength can be used to its full potential. Doing so can allow us to use considerably less construction materials.
