Finally,arrive at the final place, its lightness and spaciousness contrasts previous journey, creating a pleasant surprise for the visitors.

The most challenging of the Project is to manage the delicate time frame, only 2 months was allowed for a 1400sqm construction area, therefore, the design and choice of materials is intentionally kept minimal. The coordination between architecture and interior design is also critical in such timeframe, as any architectural/ structural elements at any unwanted location has tremendous effect on the visual outcome, especially at the 18m tower entrance. And the crystal curtain at grand hall is definitely a delicate piece of art, all handled on site by technicians, to ensure the quality of the outcome. Early on during the beginning of the design phase, we had carried out several coordination with architects and engineers to make sure the tower volume has no exposed structure, and through back and forth structural calculations, the final space has a stunning visual effect. In most area, our choice of material is proprietary products, and all these products are made ready in factories, and only installation is carried out on site, which saves a lot of construction time. And to install the 6m high crystal curtain, we had to modulate the work into manageable pieces, so that it can be delivered and installed on site correctly as designed.
