Triumph of design over practicalities?

Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy www.lloydhotel.com/ is an interesting building with a lot of history (started as emigrant’s hotel, then as a prison & and then artist workshops) and is a good example of preservation rather than demolition. The rooms are equipped with furniture from famous contemporary Dutch artists and for the bathrooms they came up with these incredible fold-away bathrooms in the middle of the room.
