The interior concept is based on the very essence of the house - City Element. The work with elemental shapes is written throughout the interior. From ornament in textiles to large green shapes. Circles and squares as a symbol of perfection. Typical elements of mid-century architecture are interpreted in the interior with arches, giving the space the structure of a gallery.

The ubiquitous inspiration of urban attributes and elemental shapes creates a unique exhibition gallery working environment. Interspersing the exterior elements of the city into the interior through the use of greenery and exterior elements such as the metal staircase and technical footbridge. Meetings in the "greenhouse" are another interspersing of the exterior into the interior.
