25hours Hotel Bikini by Studio Aisslinger

Studio Aisslinger designed the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin under the working title: Urban Jungle. The reason: half of the 149 rooms overlook the Berlin Zoo and the other half some of Berlin biggest landmarks. Using a warm design scheme with lots of natural colours, materials and custom furniture they have truly created a landmark.

Brasserie Les Haras by Jouin Manku Agency

Stairwells are in fashion these days. Agency Jouin Manku upped the ante with this insane structure in the centre of Brasserie Les Harras in Strasbourg. The brasserie is build inside a listed building and it has been made sure you can see this. The entire venue has the original wooden beams on show. Large organic shaped leather panels work as dividers and accent the wood and stone in the building brilliantly.
