Hotel Living? Really!
Bruno Billio is a lifetime resident artist at the 118-year-old Gladstone Hotel. In the midst of the 37 hotel rooms, Bruno lives in a suite of three tiny rooms. The 12-foot ceilings allow for the installation of Billio's "towers." He creates these full-height sculptures in the studio part of the space, which converts into an exhibit gallery for entertaining clients.

In a small space, take advantage of the full length and height of a wall to make room for extra needs like storage or work space. Floor-to-ceiling curtains hide Billio's full office, with storage for all of the suite's electronics and supplies, a fold-out desk and a workspace for two people.
