The architect took on the deep rectangular plan as an opportunity to create a central illuminated atrium. This adds a certain drama to an exquisitely appointed hotel interior. In the guestroom, the slight drop in level at the window opens up the view for the main space.

The manipulation of volumes and the efforts to bring in natural light elevates the interior and more than overcomes the siting of a luxury hotel within the envelope of an office tower.
