Plans unveiled for Zaha Hadid-designed hotel and spa in Macau

Zaha Hadid Architects has revealed plans for a 780-bedroom hotel to be built by property developer Melco Crown Entertainment in Cotai, Macau.

The hotel will be located at Melco Crown’s flagship City of Dreams resort in an area that takes its visual inspiration from the Las Vegas Strip.

The 40-floor hotel, which covers 150,000sq ft (13,935sq m) of space, will boast a number of amenities including a spa offering a range of massage treatments and facials, meeting and events facilities, gaming rooms, lobby, restaurants and a rooftop sky pool.

The design of the tower – which on the outside is surrounded by a giant lattice – merges traditional architectural elements of roof, wall and ceiling to create a sculptural form that also defines many of the hotel’s internal spaces.

"The design combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion," said Zaha Hadid in a statement.

The building will be Melco Crown's fifth hotel in Macau, which is a Special Administrative Region of China.

Construction started on the building last year and is set to be completed by 2017.
