The original hexagonal light fixtures and doorknobs have been preserved and new hexagon floor tiles were installed to emphasize these original design elements.
The studio includes a queen bed, kitchen, bathroom, and sitting area. Guests can come and go through the private entrance and enjoy an outdoor balcony during their stay. The kitchen offers a full fridge with freezer, small 4-burner electric stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker, washer/dryer, and complimentary coffee & tea.
