At school we have to design a hotel room for the old Volkskrant building, the target group are creatives and in the hotel room they have to experience something new and innovative. I immidiatly thought of a (old loft) elevator room. The door is elevator doors and you have two levels. The first has a livingroom and the second a bathroom.

Bathroom collage (inspiration: collage showers and lockers, a lot of light and white furniture)
