Interior Character Defining Features
The interior of the Hall of Waters is an exceptionally beautiful and important part of the overall experience of the building. Visitors to the building are struck by the building’s grandeur and unique Mayan-influenced Art Deco detailing from the moment they walk up to the building. This experience continues as they enter the First Floor Entrance Foyer and the all impressive Hall of Springs with its intricate glazed ceramic tile, double-height teal green steel windows, custom light fixtures and one-of-a-kind Water Bar. Overall, the Hall of Waters retains the original spaces and character defining features and materials which provide the building with a good degree of historic integrity. Many of these features are one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable or extremely expensive to replicate today.
