Creating a "villa in the sky" was the main concept in the design of this hotel. The goal was to create an environment that will give guests a special, remarkable experience and provide them with relaxing comfort akin to a stay in a villa, while enjoying the luxury of an urban hotel. Wind, light, and other phenomena of nature are embraced in the design. These elements are not just part of the interior design, but are also reflected in the collaborations with artists found here and there throughout the hotel. Another distinguishing feature of this project is that visitors can sense the locality of the building and catch a glimpse of the area's colorful history.
