The bathroom is following the same line but in the opposite color. To be honest I think it looks like a recording studio, with soundproofed walls. Anyway, this building is something else, it is bold and interesting, but in the same time not suited for those who want a comfortable chair or couch to watch TV, with the kids playing around.
