Much like the brilliant indoor garden a wall of tiles next to the staircase ends up being a showstopper and this eclectic collection of colorful tiles is repeated in the courtyard and bathroom to give a sense of continuity and cohesion.

The remodeled interior showcases a wonderful alchemy of the past and present as much of the original design by Paul Kirk is preserved and highlighted even as the latest additions make a bold visual impact. The large collection of windows that opens up the kitchen living and dining areas towards the sparkling city skyline is still kept intact to give the interior an airy appeal.
