In the reception light wood panels contrast with dark flooring and seats in pink and red. Patterns are created by overlapping strings stretched from the exposed ceiling pipes to the walls.

Wooden work benches act as tables in the dining area, accompanied by wood and copper-coloured stools. Bright artwork on corridor walls is based on graffiti around the city. The doors are covered with large room numbers.

"The attention to the detail and local materials was the main idea of our design, " said Bruzkus. "Rough wood panelling, open ceilings and raw copper panels, which were a surprise discovery during construction work in the basement, contrast with black walls under a mirrored ceiling in the bar area."

Communal areas include a bar, library, cafe and central courtyard. An event space in the basement with seating integrated into steps will host exhibitions by local artists and performances by local bands.

"Generator Berlin Mitte has been one of the most exciting Generator projects to date because of our collaboration with local interior designer Ester Bruzkus and also the talented Berlin-based artists who added a relevant cultural dimension, " said Mekhayech.
