The amazing openness and luminosity of the main atrium space was accomplished by the use of custom-designed steel trusses that span more than 86 feet, allowing the space to be filled with natural light. At the center of the lobby is a 10 ft. by 19 ft. rain curtain water feature with a custom water supply trough recessed into the ceiling and color changing LED lights in the basin.
