Crown Macau, Levels 8, 9 + 37
Macau, China

Bates Smart was commissioned for Crown Macau’s high limit gaming areas on level 8 and VIP gaming salons on levels 9 and 37. These intricate, sophisticated and contemporary interiors are signatures of Bates Smart’s design philosophy. Our brief was to set a new world benchmark for the design and quality of exclusive gaming environments.

Crafting a sense of modern glamour with a personal penthouse apartment style was the design intent for Level 37 salons. Each of the three salons have spectacular views and natural light. The palette of colours and materials were kept light, fresh and refined, contrasted against dark timber herringbone parquetry floors. Each salon is embellished with custom designed crystal encrusted chandeliers, finely stitched leather wall panelling, custom designed rugs and glass entry screens. The salons are then individually layered withpersonality pieces and commissioned artworks.

This luxurious apartment concept was continued through the level 8 salons. Here, the seven salons are linked with a ceremonial landscaped stone path flanked by water and textured sandstone walls. The theatrical repetition of grand light fixtures, over-scaled door handles, entrance lanterns and stone paving contrasts to the lush interiors of the salons. Upon entry there is a warm palette of materials, richly textured fabric wall panelling and timbers. A layer of intricacy is created through the use of metallic shimmer screens and custom designed carpets with a pattern inspired by radiating starbursts, all contribute to creating a sumptuous environment.

The design approach on level 9 differed to the residential concepts on the salon floors and focused on revealing anevolving sequence of spaces. Highly textured coin-like pods are arranged to create different zones and levels of privacy for VIP gaming patrons. The main bar follows the building façade line. Its highly reflective mirror, polished metals and floating ceiling formed by hundreds of soft glass baubles creates a spectacular focal point.
