The designers approached the project with a variety of green infusions, incorporating plants into the open modern design of the hotel. Throughout the hotel, hanging bag-planters are slung over exposed pipes, overgrowing with ivy. The greenhouse-like restaurant was built from salvaged materials from hot houses, and foliage peeks out through every crack. Each guest room features in-room gardens that continue to the outdoor balconies.

Floor-to-ceiling windows help feed the plants with plenty of daylight, while opening up the common areas. The bar area is backed with stadium-style seating for lounging and surrounded by planter partition walls. Bags of vegetation that sit on the floor interspersed with lounge pillows for sitting and relaxing. Hanging plants cover many of the windows and adorn the doorways, allowing the greenery to climb from one room to the next, inside and out.

The deluxe hotel is topped with a rooftop terrace, which is adorned with trees and living walls. The rooftop also features a sauna that offers panoramic views of the entire city.
