The contrast of raw and luxury is best experienced as a journey through the bar. Check in at the concrete reception desk with concrete floor and walls, get your minibar key and move into the oak woodblock floor, stainless steel fridges, and settle on the leather couch. Enjoy the digitally projected wallpaper that adds vibrancy to an ever-changing world of animation across the wall.
Each of the 3 stainless steel fridges contains 15 minibars with their own number, lock and transparent door with individual colour coding. The warm colours from the fridge filters in combination with the golden accent of the 18 suspended lamps, the wooden floors and tables give the central area a warm atmosphere.
The fridges are all placed at an 83 degrees angle from the walls to allow the guests a great view of the space walking towards the 45 minibars. The 83 degrees angle is carried through into the rest of the interior, with the wooden bar tables, long custom made leather couch, and line of spots on the ceiling. To complete this picture, even the glass façade and floor borders are set at the same 83 degrees.
At the rear of the building, further on from the luxury and comfort of the bar area, the concrete motif/theme continues at the reception area. A spacious reading table cast in solid concrete with an oak wood block top sits on the returning theme of a raw concrete floor.
The back of the house enables staff to restock the fridges, as clients select their choices from the front. An indicator lights up when a fridge is opened, allowing the staff to check and refill the fridge from the rear as needed. Through a hand held computer, this information is relayed electronically to the reception, so the bill can be paid.
