The Paul

The Paul is an all-suite hotel with a large central atrium that serves as a reception, lounge and coffee shop. The atrium is designed to create the setting of an oasis through the use of gurgling fountains, clusters of palms, and natural materials, such as wood, slate and granite. A large fabric roof—reminiscent of tents in a desert—covers the atrium, allowing the space to be used in all weather conditions.
