The hotel stands out for its bold, geometrical facade, with its tilted and inclined windows shielding the rooms away from the harsh western sun while resulting in a dramatic, spacious room interior. The lofty, transparent ground floor obscure the division between public and private spaces with lush landscaping, bubbling fountains overlapped in layers. Three intimate courtyard spaces with views to the sky are carved out, bringing light into the hotel’s internal spaces, opening up the hotel for maximum ventilation with open corridors. The rooftop glows with an elevated transparent pool providing guests with respite and views of the city skyline.
