Hadid-designed City of Dreams Hotel Tower destined for construction in Cotai, Macau 


Renderings of the latest commercial development by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) have been released. The 150,000 sq m structure is the fifth hotel tower in the City of Dreams development for Melco Crown Entertainment in Cotai, Macau. Arguably the most architecturally-daring of the five towers, ZHA’s scheme features an exposed exoskeleton which optimises the interior layout of the building.

Spread over 40 floors, the development incorporates 780 guestrooms, suites and spas, supported by a plethora of hotel amenities including meeting and event facilities, gaming rooms, restaurants, a spa and a sky pool. Work has already commenced on the project with the first guests expected in early 2017.

The design combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion. The rectangular outline of the site is extruded as a monolithic block with a series of voids which carve through the centre of the tower, merging traditional architectural elements of roof, wall and ceiling to create a sculptural form that defines many of the hotel’s internal public spaces.
