Constance Guisset summarised the brief provided by Accor as "just like home" and "free as a bird".

The studio's concept used commonplace furniture, domestic materials and multi-functional spaces to make guests feel comfortable.

Built-in furniture made of triply wood include shelving, desks and sofas was intended for flexible use around the reception space.

A selection of freestanding tables and chairs fill the room and create more places for guests to relax.

"We intentionally didn't use luxurious elements but pieces of furniture that you might also find at home, and authentic and cosy materials you can find in your everyday life," Lucie Verlaguet of Constance Guisset told Dezeen.

"We also wanted the space to be transversal: there is not a specific part devoted to work or to relaxation."

The open-plan reception features a food service and dining area beside the check-in desk, where vertical surfaces are coloured dark grey and horizontal planes are made from the light-coloured wood.

Seating areas on the other side are positioned next to a large, irregularly shaped window, framed by bright yellow and pale blue curtains in Kvadrat fabric.

Guisset's various lighting designs in pastel shades add more accents of colour.

"Several joyful and playful lights have been chosen in order to create different atmospheres, like the Cape and Chantilly lamps originally designed by Constance Guisset for Moustache," said Verlaguet.
