The work on the interior design of the LION'S CASTLE HOTEL included a number of restoration measures to preserve
the authentic elements of both buildings of the hotel. We didn't set ourselves the task of getting a coherent picture,
because the two objects are different in style, construction approaches, and ergonomics. One object is a representative
of modernism with the use of Neo-Gothic elements while the other one is reminiscent of the progressive time of
transition to a functional way of thinking in design in the interwar period of the last century. The thinking was in trend
with the trends that were current in Europe at that time.
It was important not to damage or lose the filling of the interior that has survived to our time, among which in
satisfactory condition were the stairs that have not lost their original finish. In one case it was a reinforced concrete base
with black and white tiles on the inter-floor marches in a checkerboard pattern with metal handrails, and in the other
one they were totally made of oak wood. They have an imprint of time, which fortunately did not harm their
functionality, so the wooden stairs were kept, restored and became a real highlight of the interior. Joinery products were
replaced with full authenticity.
In general, the considerate attitude to the buildings of the hotel complex following their historical value made it
possible to properly emotionally restart this historical location.
