Natural light bathes the atrium and gold leaf adorns the front desk, above which an old tower clock has stopped telling time. Sheer curtains on either side point the way to the bar and restaurant or to the ten conference rooms, which cater not only to guests but to grateful local professionals who regularly migrate to this one-of-a-kind hotel.

KLAUS PETER LANGE

Given that Gastwerk’s redbrick shell and a monstrous green industrial machine from the building’s bygone days as a power station were both under a strict preservation order, a sensitive conversion to a hotel was required of Hamburg architect Klaus Peter Lange. Rising to the occasion, he integrated the green monstrosity into the design of the 600 square meter atrium lobby, in which a bridge leading to the guestrooms is suspended overhead.

Interior Design

REGINE SCHWETHELM & SIBYLLE VON HEYDEN

Designers Regine Schwethelm and Sibylle von Heyden set about contrasting the building’s rough edges with soothing textures, slick and simple furniture, and touches of Asia. Finest walnut wood trimmings, tall casement windows, and unmasked concrete walls, garnish lofts and suites, while propeller-headed ceiling fans pay homage to the many mechanical devices once whirring away in the power-station.
