Bookmatched Marble for Boutique Hotel
The Penthouse has a sumptuous bedroom with bookmatched Greylac marble used on the floor and continuing over the bed pedestal and seating platform and then up the TV wall and headboard. The top of the dining table was also in the same marble. The bathing facilities, where polished Mystery White was used throughout for cladding, vanity unit and skirting, include a steam room, dual shower rooms, private and guest toilets and a spacious Jacuzzi under a retractable roof.
In all 16 different marbles and granites were used in the guest bathrooms, bars and washrooms as well as the lift floors. The public washrooms in the basement made use of Nero Marquina in the Gents and Mystery White in the Ladies. Both of these were combined in a dramatic geometric design on the walls and floor of the shared hand wash area and the design was continued in polished Neolith Estatuario and Nero San Marcos in a leather finish for the basin pedestal.
