In the lobby, screens are used to divide spaces for different functions, allowing every person who walks through to get prepared for the next trip. The screens add some vertical line in the horizontal space, enriching the visual experience.Maybe you’ll notice that there sculptures of two elephants and a bird with a leaf, which symbolize the desire to find greenness of Noah’s Ark. The piece of artwork by sculptor Page Tsou is a gift for the guests. Perhaps you would find your favorite writer, or your favorite quote about travel on the wall, such as the one from Henry Miller: “one’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing thing.’’ Here, you might find something—a picture or a few words—that reminds you of those special moments in your memory.
