The architects combined Gothic and modern styles in the design of the building. Black brick on the frontage of the building (symbolizing coal) was selected to give an idea of solidity and to give the building a solid mass. Other parts of the facade were covered in gold bricks (symbolizing fire), and the entry was decorated with marble and black mirrors.
A tribute to a very significant and positive change in my life that has been long overdue, a symbol of thanks to everyone who has stood by me regardless of my mistakes, but most importantly, a reminder to myself that I can have it all, because I am worth it!
