New Glass at the Murano

Things continue to shape up nicely over at the Hotel Murano. Still not much more visible progress on the large "dipper" like piece. Some stylish light blue slatted, almost pixelated looking glass is now fronting the main lobby. Check it out:

Still have yet to see that glass garden out front take anymore shape than the ground being prepped and, from the hotel's blog, it sounds like new art is being installed floor by floor.

I've also heard there's now an espresso in the lobby now. Maybe we can sick the Tacoma Urbanist on them to add to his already impressive list of local coffee tastes.

The new glass on the windows is the artist's signature method.

I am there. Though I usually give places a month or two to figure out what they are doing. Years ago, the Sheraton used to have a coffee shop I went to here alot.

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
