The interior is left as "free" as possible. The bathrooms are inside the rooms, divided from them by a screen for privacy. The architect's motto is "simplicity, from ceiling to carpet". The geometry of the bathroom sinks recalls that of the building as a whole. The counter 4.5 metre long counter in the hall is also made of corian, replicating the facade.
The building has 5 floors, with 45 luxuriously furnished rooms measuring from 27 to 55 square metres (five rooms on the top floor have a terrace with a panoramic view over the Garonne) as well as a great hall (180 m2) and a cocktail bar (150 m2), a wellness centre and a conference room, all at a cost of 4.2 million euro.
The project manages to integrate a contemporary sign into a historic city thanks to the simplicity of its design and the architect's choice of colours.
