The principle concept established for this project at the Mandarin Oriental in Macau, is to embody tranquility at its essence through capturing the elements of nature.

The Tree is symbolic of being protective, sheltering and being able to nurture life-giving energy. The idea is to allow its occupants to enter a nature-inspired living space, where they could feel relaxed and safe within the comfort of their own home.

Walking through the entrance door reveals a welcoming feeling of freshness with leaves are blowing and swaying towards the ceiling.
