AE interests: In order to reduce the total weight of the building, the partitions between rooms were fit with light structural steel trusses. The hotel was built in a very noisy area, right next to the A2, which is one of the busiest highways, the glass facade that hangs on the outside also creates a lot of noise. To fix these problems, they designed a glass reinforced polyester (GRP) interior facade that blocks out all noise and keeps the heat load from the sun low.
