The floor of the curves suggests a winding path leads through a bustling city and many program elements are open to the views through the central void. Although the gap seems to offer complete visibility, there are enclaves for private meetings and guest privacy. It is designed for an activity that feeds the next time that affect clear separations between each activity.

Cars are literally pushed into the water. As guests head to their rooms, spectacular views Zayed Bay even more dramatic in the upper floors.
