Design of an integrated resort in the famous Macau Cotai Strip.
Sector: Hotels / Clubhouses
Client: Paramount Grand Resorts
Services: Master Planning
Budget: $2 billion USD
“MAP has worked with Paramount Grand Resorts to provide concept designs for an integrated resort for the Cotai Strip in Macau. There have been two incarnations for the project: the first based around a single three sided tower, the second around two simpler gently curved blocks.
A strong water element is consistent to both designs, and in the second scheme water weaves through a series of themed entertainment spaces culminating in a natural wave pool and aquarium. At the risk of being cliché, MAP chose water as the theme as the Paramount Grand want to be a family resort. Incorporating water into the concept, the resort becomes attractive to most families incorporating wave pools, waterslides, an aquarium and a mini-sea world in the design. While the concept is technically difficult, building a dramatic composition of fragmented and reassembled forms is a challenge MAP relishes.”
