Simplistic beauty has been the goal from the start. Beauty that comes from a modest operation and becomes delightfully absurd. The field of steel columns with operable planter boxes defines a new datum with which the topography plays. Entering the site, the avenues cut into the field to allow movement and gathering spaces. As you move up the hill, you slowly rise out of the forest and see a field of living and dying plants that stretch out over the site and crawl up the hotel.
