An historic building re-imagined as a sleek, modern hotel gets me every time but especially when a tome-filled library is its centerpiece. This is the library/lounge of the new B2 Boutique Hotel in Zurich housed in a former brewery and it holds over 30,000 books! My jaw dropped when I saw the extra high ceiling, arched windows and those light fixtures.
The belted chairs and tables are kind of cooky and funky, don’t you think?
I like what’s going on with the walls too. Overall I think the design is really original and does a great job of highlighting the architectural features of the building.
