The building structure is designed like a sculpture and flaunts its diversity to the outside world.

The asymmetric building structure designed by French architect Jean Nouvel comprises a six-storey base, from which the hotel tower soars up to a height of 75 metres. Depending on the orientation, the glazing in the façade is a different colour and shape. Facing east, the glass has a reflective white appearance; facing south, it is grey; and facing north, it is transparent and has different shapes. The illuminated ceilings designed by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist can be seen from afar. These extraordinary colour features cover almost 2000 m2 of the cantilevered ceiling of the hotel entrance and foyer, as well as the ceilings of the winter garden and panoramic restaurant.

The striking design of the GROHE Atrio faucets gives the bathrooms of the five-star hotel a refined and stylish touch. The perfect flow of water ensures a sensual water experience every time.
