The Las Vegas Strip will shine even brighter this December when the much-anticipated Fontainebleau Las Vegas makes its debut.
This massive project is located next to the Las Vegas Convention Center, which has been in the works for 16 years and has cost $3.7 billion, according to Bloomberg– Features sophisticated spaces that celebrate the 70-year legacy of Maurice Lapidus’ architecture at Fontainebleau Miami Beach while heralding a new concept of modern luxury.
The creation of the 67-storey resort, which includes 36 restaurants and bars, was a team effort, with a large number of world-renowned interior designers, architects and landscape architects collaborating with Fontainebleau Development’s interior design team.
Fontainebleau Development founder Geoffrey Soffer appointed London-based studio David Collins to design the hotel’s overall ethos, as well as custom-designed designs for the lobby and lounge bar, VIP check-in, steakhouse, bar, lounge and suites.
“Throughout Fontainebleau Las Vegas, you will find grand, monumental spaces featuring unusual shapes, materials and spatial finishes that reflect the design language of Fontainebleau Miami Beach,” says Simon Rawlings, creative director at David Collins Studio, who led the project. “History is in the details with icons and symbols seamlessly integrated into the design that represents history and authentic character balanced with modern touches and elegant details geared toward the discerning global traveler at Fontainebleau Las Vegas.”
New York-based studio Carlos Zapata is responsible for the hotel’s exterior architecture, while global firm Rockwell Group has envisioned four food and beverage concepts for Groot Hospitality, including the Southeast Asian restaurant Komodo and LIV nightclub, as well as an ambitious gaming zone and fitness center . Additionally, John Rollins, executive vice president of design at Fontainebleau, led the design of the 3,644 guest rooms and suites, which feature a palette of blue and silver tones with coral accents.
Lissoni & Partners’ New York office was commissioned to design the 55,000-square-foot spa, while Jeffrey Beers International designed the outdoor pool areas and more than 550,000 square feet of flexible meeting and conference space.
