The sophisticated materials selected by the designers include porcelain stoneware tiles by Eiffelgres: Autentika Rust and Autentika Moor in the 60x30 size with chiselled and natural finishes stand out for their wealth of different hues and luminescence, lights and shadows that underline the architectural space.
In the centre of the lobby is a bar, surrounded by cosy little niches, alcoves in which to isolate oneself to think, read or smoke a cigar in peace. The restaurant reflects the idea of a garden: it has an open layout with a number of different areas described as “garden alcoves”, and a dining area in the middle to create a proper spatial balance.
The conference area, dominated by warm, soft hues, is accessed via a foyer with a light, transparent look with direct access from the outside. Last but not least, the treatment areas are characterised by big designs representing buds, a symbol of freshness, metamorphosis, harmony and fertility.
