To create a varied screen we have broken the glass facade with light boards and eboards. This facade serves to shield the building from the sun, as well as plays with light and shade to create an interesting interior, as well as breaks the monotony of the glass facade, creating a warm, homely and interesting exterior. All the rooms open onto the lawn, ensuring adequate daylight and exposure to nature, though the solar influx does not heat them up inordinately.
A rooftop garden serves to both enhance the visual appeal of the hotel façade as well as insulate the roof from the sun, reducing air-conditioning costs.
