The monumental building where the property is located dates from the early twentieth century. A century later, however, it had become functionally and technically outdated. In the making of the Art’otel, the trick was to maintain and restore most of the exteriors, such as the monumental facades, and some monumental interior aspects, while completely renewing and renovating the interior.

ADP was responsible for the basics, including the lay-out, structure and organization of the project. The firm’s idea was to use the building for cultural ends.  The firm also changed the building construction by creating a wide exposition area within the basement. Along with the restaurant, run by Lifestyle Venue 5&33, this part of the building is publicly accessible. The upper floors contain over a hundred high-end hotel rooms. The different parts of the building are thematically joined by the artworks of Atelier Van Lieshout, the signature artist of the Art’otel.
