Morpheus Hotel on the north side of City of Dreams occupies a unique position, bounded visually on the north by the lush green parklands of Taipa Natural Park, the glitz of the Cotai Strip on the south and the boundless hues of the South China Sea to the east. The building is informed by the fluid forms within China’s rich tradition of jade carving and the external hues of Morpheus influenced by City of Dreams (inspired by the theme of water) and the rich blue tones of the ocean through a subtle palate of silver cladding and sky blue glazing. The three voids scooped out from the building, aids to visually break up the formal rectilinear nature of its architecture and acts to create a visual corridor between the Taipa Natural Park to the Cotai Strip.
