Designs by OMA for an approximately 300-foot-tall, 650-room hotel in Amsterdam—poised to be the Netherland’s largest hotel—have been released.

According to ArchDaily, OMA’s design was chosen ahead of eleven firms. Once completed, and if approved, the structure will add three stacked cubes to the Amsterdam skyline.

In addition to the Nhow Hotel Rai, the building’s main occupant, the project will also have a television studio, art gallery, spa center, sculpture garden, a multimedia presentation space, a lounge and bar on the 25th floor, and something that developers call a “3D holographic meeting space.”

The designs were unveiled after the project’s 15-year brainstorm process. Before OMA’s recently released design, a larger 800-room scheme was rejected by the city a few years ago.
