Default Tau buildings interior?

We´re all pretty sure how the architecture of Tau buildings look on the outside, but what about the inside? Haven´t seen much of this, and it could be nice to know since I´m planning on building a Retha wich will need an inside o course.

i think it would have the same feel as their buildings nice and curved, and maybe like the interior of the Geonosis from starwars episode 2, just an idea (those were kool chairs lol)

the last chancer's Novel Kill Team has quite a bit of description of the interior of Tau buildings.

the general design is practically minimalistic. doors are all but invisible in the wall until they spiral open. the same goes for things like viewscreens, tables, ect. the controls for those are either activaed by sensors (think like those handdryers in washrooms), or using controlpads built into the surfaces themselves and marked by little darker areas. colors look to be part of the materials itself, and patterns tend to be subdued, almost invisible (an effect the Tau find to be relaxing). and of course, it's all in the curvy style, with few sharp edges. oh, and no railings on staircases.

sounds a lot like the Drak building in the novel 'Enemy papers'

All curves, round door, very esthetic look, big round windows.
