The challenge set forth was to devise 2 distinct hotel experiences under single ownership, amplifying efficiency as well as the distinction of each. Innovative manipulations of program maximize pleasure and profitability. Both hotels capture the essence of the world renowned resorts of which they were spawn— yet create an entirely new hospitality experience that will distinguish this Vegas property from all others on The Strip. Function fuses with fantasy as an ethereal, white steel diamond structured Delano floats 400 feet above the ground supported by the tip of the Mondrian and a delicate core encased by large pixeled LED’s. The Delano light and wispy—forms a platform in the clouds for dreaming and while the Mondrian is solid and impenetrable, inspired by the monolith in Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odyssey. Cascading gardens and pools integrate visually and physically with the towers—a foil to the typical internalized experience of a Vegas hotel. Comprising, 1,400 rooms, suites, penthouses, bungalows, a 3-story rooftop spa (Delano), rooftop Skybar (Mondrian), activity deck and 400 foot rock climbing wall– every surface of the architecture has been finely tuned to increase enjoyment in this adult playground. In association with Klai Juba, Architect of Record.
