The design is a contemporary eclectic-industrial style. On this two storeys building the main theme was to create a major “object and material contrast”.

Warm materials such as wood and recovered brick are highlighted by white metal and ceramics. Glossy elements are also contrasting with rough natural wood floor. Retro light bulbs were used for creating a warm general atmosphere.

One other important characteristic is the disposing of the two bars, one on each floor. The furniture features classical design Thonet chairs, and comfortable sofas- both have 2 finishes, textile and leather enclosed with brushed wood. the major attraction of the place is the visual connection between the floors, combined with the 2 meters diameter chandelier.
