The architects implemented a grid system within the space in order to divide, frame, and highlight focus areas. Reeded glass enhances privacy on the lower levels while maximizing natural light throughout. The double-height ceiling reception and communal lounge space is augmented with oversized paper lanterns and contemporary wall lights that align with the wall paneling.
