The architects were given the opportunity to reconstruct this accommodation, which serves to accommodate international clients and employees of companies in the fashion industry. Since the room is a compromise between hotel rooms and apartments in the loft, and then took a simple, harmonious design solution that would satisfy the diverse tastes of its residents.

The vacant space used under large living bathed in daylight. The original design was deliberately left intact, it deliberately just the basics well contrasted with the careful treatment of the interior parts, where each surface has attracted attention to the materials and textures.
