The vertically accented facades of the longer sides will be constructed from glass with different transparency levels and opaque aluminum elements. As the building rises in height, the shape reduces in size, responding to the program while controlling the amount of direct sunlight that reaches the interior of the tower. The goal is to provide maximum interior daylight while allowing hotel guests to enjoy panoramas of the city.

A lush sunken courtyard and entrance area located on the western side of the building will complete the lively structure.
