accommodating private, luxurious facilities, the renzo piano-designed building will include a water feature that leads to a swimming pool as well as a beach-oriented bar. rising through the trees, the scheme’s glazed lobby on the ground floor will incorporate lush greenery. meanwhile, a library will be decorated with themed photography.
