Overall, the hotel features a bright and spacious interior. Because the building used to be a factory, the architects also wanted to emphasize the industrial background so elements such as brick walls and ceilings were also incorporated in the design. Bare concrete floors have also been introduced in various areas as well as a concrete reception counter.{found on ArchDaily}.
