Then the interior living plants carefully incorporated into the restaurants and public spaces, bringing a touch of the outdoors in and providing the desired sense of luxury

The Store’s collaboration with Leaflike results in a stunning showcase of biophilic design that seamlessly intertwined with the hotel’s luxury lifestyle and cosy vibe.
