Flipping the site of a former cigarette factory, Polish design and architecture studio EC-5 has officially opened the doors to its modernized “Tobaco Hotel.” Located in the historic factory district of Poland’s third-largest city Łódź, the hotel’s motif leaves much of the industrial structure of the building visible and intact, complimented by a methodically chosen selection of ’50s and ’60s era furnishings. Vivid blue and yellow hues feature throughout, balanced by white ceilings and walls in addition to exposed brick and concrete identifying the significant transition the space has made. “Tobaco Hotel” can be counted amongst a broad number of architectural projects that EC-5 has executed in Łódź, the city in which it is based, as well as elsewhere in Poland.
