Grand Plaza Mövenpick Media City offers an exquisite and diverse gastronomy across five restaurants, bars and lounges.

The glass sculpture is inspired by the fast and focused flight of birds, and also by the hotel itself. The Mövenpick brand has a seagull in its logo and LASVIT managed to capture the essence of its flight over a sea shore into a glass sculpture. Hence its name Swoop.
neoalpha global has carried out the conceptualization, design development and site supervision of the overall FOH architectural lighting. The overall design scope included lighting design for the external landscape, external facade and interior spaces.
