the guest suites are located in two complimentary volumes, an east wing and a west wing, forming an exterior which stretches across the island. a soaring 18 meter high top lit atrium connects the two volumes, thus, creating an interplay of light and shadow. a restaurant, private dining suite, bar, library, business center and rooftop terrace are included in the program as is a gallery for special events overlooking the gardens and the waterfront.
