Given the privileged corner situation of the plot, two different accesses are provided, one for the Hotel and the other for the mall. The Hotel entrance caters for a generous drop area leading to covered porch “subtracted” from the flat basalt façade. The Mall entrance is developed along the secondary street through a public piazza. The faceted volume of the mall makes it act as a sculpted gem acquiring a crystalline effect with its textured copper skin.
