    The external look of the hotel had a major influence on the overall appearance of the interior. The building functions as a congress facility for a demanding clientele. The open lobby concept, in which the bar is the central point, was designed to support a variety of activities during the day, including business meetings.

    The interconnection of different functional zones from the restaurant to the conservatory offers a flexible use of space. There are even two fully equipped meeting rooms. The presence of sliding doors in the lobby allows the layout to be divided into conference and hotel areas as required.

    Quality and timelessness are emphasised in the material and surface design. Carpentry wood panelling, concrete squeegees, ceramic mosaics, translucent curtains and decorative plaster blend naturally in all spaces. The colour palette responds to the exterior appearance of the building, with a green central bar complemented by red granite.

    Natural tones are preferred, creating an elegant yet welcoming atmosphere. The artistic interplay of the ripple motif or vertical troughs is unmistakable. Furniture and other interior furnishings are designed with individuality and practicality in view.

    The combination of bookcase sets, shelving walls and mobile furniture contributes to the functionality and aesthetics of the entire interior. A completely unique feature in the hotel lobby is the terrazzo or cast stone floor. This solution is very challenging to implement, not least given the fact that the construction work was carried out during normal hotel operations. The noisier tasks were carefully coordinated in order not to disturb the hotel guests. However, the result is a breathtaking effect and appearance that is not common in hotel lobbies.
