Inside, the designers separated the core volume from the rest of the building, again to enable future renovations. This core is built from a new building material comprised of recycled paper and plastic. Although the interior definitely is typically sterile, this design adds just the right amount of light, color, and nature to give it a comforting atmosphere.
