An Inside perspective at the INSPIRATION & DESIGN and TALENT behind the making of an ICON "CITYCENTER" for MGM MIRAGE

1 Comment
  • Libeskind and Jahn Seemed to have some inspiration in their buildings at center stage of the project. The balance of teh building exteriors were uninspired, if only a backdrop to Libeskind and Jahn.

    All the interiors, which aparently Vegas puts all its money, were well done with the exception of Wong who went the cold route.

  84. 84. Vdara Hotel & Spa<br />This nongaming hotel is the best-behaved student <br />in a class of do-gooders. <br />While CityCenter was built &quot;green&quot; <br />and most of its properties <br />have earned LEED Gold certification, <br />Vdara takes it one step further: no smoking. <br />At check-in they underscore the smoking ban <br />and make you sign on the dotted line. <br />If your idea of Vegas indulgence <br />includes hearing the bells <br />and whistles of slot machines <br />and breathing in cigarette smoke, <br />Vdara is definitely not your place. <br />But if you&apos;re looking for a sedate, <br />well-designed oasis of civility, <br />this 57-story curved tower of glass designed <br />by Rafael Vinoly might be up your alley.<br />CITYCENTERVdara Hotel MGM MIRAGE <br />

  106. 106. Mandarin Oriental Hotel & Residences<br />Discreet elegance is this chain&apos;s hallmark, <br />and that pretty much sums up the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas.<br /> The 47-story hotel designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox <br />looks important but unfussy from the outside; <br />and even its public spaces inside show luxurious restraint. <br />But once you slip into one of the hotel&apos;s 392 rooms, <br />Mandarin Oriental lets its hair down (inasmuch as it allows itself). <br />The rooms, designed by Adam Tihany<br />(who crafted the hotel interior top to bottom), <br />are tidy affairs that ooze opulence<br />Everything has its place in the room <br />but everything also is thoughtfully designed<br />The Residences,designed by Kay Lang <br />aspire the soul to relax in a sleek and sophisticated setting. <br /> CITYCENTERMandarin Oriental Hotel & Residences MGM<br />

  119. 119. With the much anticipated opening of The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas at CityCenter, the sophisticated design of Kay Lang + Associates becomes a tangible dream; an unsurpassed Zen retreat blended with stylish haute couture. <br />“From the lobby through the residences themselves, we sought to create an aesthetic that would take your soul into a space to relax and renew in a sleek and sophisticated setting,” said Kay Lang, president and CEO of Kay Lang + Associates. “The result is a peaceful, neutral palette inspired by the classic, yet modern Asian design of the Mandarin Oriental Hotels worldwide.”  <br />At the moment of entry, guests are seamlessly transformed through a color palette reminiscent of the building’s exterior in the residential lobby. The reception desk, dramatically placed, is formed by a translucent white backlit onyx with sustainable Zebrawood, set by the backdrop of Michel Tabori’s “End of Day,” a dreamlike blend of high-gloss sunrise and sunset tones. A custom chandelier reminiscent of antique gold Chinese coins is suspended from dramatic high ceilings above the residential elevator lobby, a counterpart to the Asian design elements below. Natural textures, teak wood and Zebrawood come together with onyx, bronze, gold and silver to complete the overall palette. <br />A tournament-size pool table will bring residents together in a space surrounded by teak wood and limestone walls, adorned by Zen objet d’art’s and small sculptures. Inky black splashes and oblique lines mark the captivating canvas by artist Scott Waterman acts as a dramatic backdrop at the resident’s lounge. A subtle triptych by accomplished artist Daniel Brice adorns the corridor walls connecting the hotel to the residents’ lounge. Within The Residences themselves, Lang has designed a surreal haven where residents will escape to their own Zen retreat; each residence its own unique vantage point with magnificent expansive views. A sense of peace, unquestionable beauty and unsurpassed opulence are found in each of the three distinct finish packages: Majestic Pearl, Sovereign Jade and Imperial Orchid, offering residents the opportunity to personalize their living space with an expression of their own individual taste. Like orchids in nature, “Imperial Orchid” features the soft tones of orchid flowers, blending subtle notes of orange and coral with varied shades of wheat. Bamboo browns and hues of safari-inspired russet nestle together in an earthy, inviting canvas.The stunning, approximately 2,000 to 4,000-square-foot penthouse residences at Mandarin Oriental offer the highest level of five-star resort amenities in a personal residence. Incorporating the standards and sensibilities of the most discerning tastes, Lang’s expert team of designers developed three luxurious finish packages to complement the opulent residences: Splendid Sunrise, Celestial Clouds and Royal Sunset.  Like the gorgeous hues of a desert sunrise, the “Splendid Sunrise” palette is comprised of orange and tangerine tones, striated like a sunset, paired with lacquered black accents and enduring oak woods. Silver sashays into shades of white, while striped wood variations beckon to sleek, undiluted browns. <br />Situated on the top floors of Mandarin Oriental, the Penthouse Collection is seemingly in the clouds, providing the inspiration for the “Celestial Clouds” package. Complementing the interiors, honey-spun hues of russet and clay with pops of rust form a perfectly harmonized color story. Dark woods give richness to slate-colored tiles and transparent, frosted accents.The “Royal Sunset” palette is comprised of the multi-tonal variations of a desert sunset over the western mountains, with seductive reeds of chartreuse draped near gentle shades of eggplant, perfectly setting the tempo near definitive silver and chestnut browns. Blonde marble gives a stoic, centered feel to perfectly placed black and flecks of gold.<br />Kay Lang<br />CITYCENTERMandarin Oriental Residences by Kay Lang MGM<br />
