AR­CHI­TEC­TURAL WON­DER

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - NEWS -

In­no­va­tion meets lux­ury in City of Dreams’ new land­mark ho­tel in Ma­cau, whose bound­ary-break­ing de­sign by Zaha Ha­did Ar­chi­tects has made a no­table im­pact on the city known as the ‘Ve­gas of China’. Named after the Greek god of dreams, Mor­pheus (mean­ing ‘shape) is the world’s first ‘free-form ex­oskele­ton-bound high-rise ar­chi­tec­tural com­po­si­tion’, with a twist­ing steel geo­met­ric grid that negates the need for in­ter­nal walls or col­umns. A to­tal of 770 guest rooms, suites and sky vil­las oc­cupy the 40-storey ho­tel, which also boasts a rooftop spa and pool, and 12 glass el­e­va­tors pro­vide vis­i­tors with panoramic views of the sculp­tural interiors de­signed by Peter Reme­dios as well as the city be­low. city­of­dreams­macau.com, zaha-ha­did.com
