The concept is to raise the new program off the gound and out it in the sky like a FLOATING GARDEN. This gesture makes an iconic statement which makes the hotel immediately recognizable and a new landmark for the area. Advantages of raising the main new programs off the ground include unobstructed views of the ocean and a panaromic view of the area. In the FLOATING GARDEN are communal rooms and restaurants for all the hotel guests and local residents to enjoy. The structure has a separate access structure which allow it to accept guests directly from the ground floor lobby to the new structure so that they don't have to distrurb the hotel guests.
