The envelope features large expanses of concrete and glass organized into a series of discreet boxes that break up the mass of the façade.

“The architecture is a three-dimensional piece of art with large colored murals by Jenny Stark on each side of the building; the building is thus recognizable among all others,” Concrete said.
“With twisted boxes, you can experience art from all sides.”
Inside, the glass-lined entrance is meant to act as an “art gallery” as visitors access a set of elevators that reach the lobby level on the second floor.
The lobby space features a number of typical sofas and work stations and plenty of light, with exposed concrete beams supporting the ceiling with wood accents.

Although small, most rooms have an extra large bed that sits under the window with storage space underneath.
The bathrooms are tucked across from a pressurized tub and wrapped in polycarbonate that have been outfitted with LED lights. They can be controlled through a tablet that manages most of the room’s functions, including blinds, TV, and room services.
