One of the famous Bauhaus schools is now transferred into a trendy hotel. The hotel is located in the former East Germany, Dessau in the asymmetric concrete  building is designed in 1925 by Walter Gropius himself – he was the founder of the Bauhaus school of design. The building was closed in 1933, during the Nazi regime who saw it as un-German and too influenced by cosmopolitan modernism.

The minimalistic building has colour high lights as orange walls, yellow ceilings and red furniture. Breakfast is served in the original canteen where the students used to eat – the chairs are designed by the most famous student at the school, Marcel Breuer.
