AE Interest: Because the site is so complex, each guest room is shorter and wider that a regular hotel room. However, this is an opportunity for guests to engage in the greenery surrounding the building, not only in the bedroom but also in the bathroom. By installing more than 100 cantilevering concrete planters, the greenery appears at all the façades balconies, along the narrow corridors and rooftop as well. The main material for the façade is the local sandstone. This greenery not only provides solar shading but also allows cooler air to ventilate the spaces. [a]
