A Colorful Moroccan Water Wall Greets Visitors at the Main Entrance

The Moroccan water wall lends a cool tranquillity to the lobby. The perpetual waterfall flows down a colorful mosaic of hand-crafted Moroccan "zellige" or tiles. As it reaches the bottom, the water is sent gently across a flat tile slab matching the vertical wall above before vanishing into invisible drainage slots in the tile work.

A companion Moroccan tile-work across the lobby offers another eye-catching example of the art of zellige mosaics.
