Suppose Design Office refurbished an old concrete building from 1908 to create this small hotel with only three bedrooms.

The idea was not to create something entirely new but to design an environment where guests can enjoy the building's past. The hotel is located in a bustling part of the city with shops and restaurants close by. Plants dominate some of the newly introduced finishes, allowing nature and humans to coexist and harmonise with each other.

This project has been longlisted in the rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
