Entrance lobby in white undulated wall-cum-ceiling spatial envelope with silk-screened texts provides transition from the busy world to an abstract and serene hospitality space.  A temporary cloud-like art installation in the multi-functional exhibition zone greets customers through subtle interactive projection.

Refreshment function of cock-tail events was supplemented by the brown-toned lobby lounge, where also tree-like timber screens and river-like copper curtain give privacy and acoustic quality to the space during usual days.  The artistic flavour of the hospitality experience was completed by a full-height black and white photo-collage wall of the city life by a famous local visual artist.
