The theme for the hotel interior was inspired by the exterior, a beam of light that rises up through the hotel’s seven-story interior atrium. A large scale abstract design which appears to be multi-dimensional gigantic origami.
Colors and shapes from the exterior were translated to a smaller scale and reintroduced on the interior in public spaces and guest rooms.
