Former office building Sphinxstate  was converted into a VIA Hostel with 170 rooms and 744 beds. The interior of the hotel, including the vast majority of the furniture, was designed by Sheryl Leysner, who created a distinctive and urban look. She worked a lot with slanting lines and color planes which fit the 80's architectural style of the building. Leysner chose the sturdy Job Cabinet in the rooms combined with the iconic Gispen 205 chair.

"The room floors are sleek, fresh and light. The first floor is a different world, with other colors where there is more gray and darker, appropriate for a hospitality area," Leysner states.
