The design concept of the Bergs family hotel is the same as for the whole Bergs Bazaar – a dialogue between historical 19th century and the contemporary 21st century architectural forms and function.


Two former residential houses have been united in one volume with a glass covered courtyard between them. A metal framed glass roof historically defines a passage and the Bazaar was lacking such an element until such element was introduced in the architecture of the Hotel Bergs as a result of the renovation. Additional glass mansard floor was also built on top of the brick house.
