Perforated red louvers form a “veil,” or double skin, that enfolds the building and frames a large back-lit diamond at the top, which is symbolic of the character of the project. High end retail and a casino occupy the podium level with a luxury hotel above.
Front provided full facade consultancy services throughout the development of the project. Initially there was an exhaustive design process, followed by a procurement process review that ultimately led to a “design assist” contract with Hong Kong-based facade contractor Far East Aluminum. This is a significant hotel and casino project both in scale and complexity that required a large amount of system design and strategy review cycles. Front then contributed to a rigorous visual mock up and factory review regime, and continues to regularly monitor progress on site.
