Grand Lisboa Casino and Hotel
Located in the heart of Macau's new lakefront, the Grand Lisboa is the tallest building in Macau. The 40-story hotel tower was designed in the symbolic shape of a blooming lotus, while the podium is a "Fabergé egg" nestled in ornamental metalwork leaves.
This architecturally outrageous and geometrically complex project includes a podium dome consisting of 5,600 unique pieces of glass and a 35-story hotel tower. Both the tower and the podium are clad with 24K gold-coated glass, and the podium includes titanium-laminated glass. With computer-controlled R.G.B. L.E.D. discs at every glass joint, the curving 3D surface of the casino podium serves as a large-scale, 16,000-color video screen.
Heintges designed an efficient unitized system that allowed for standardized factory assembly and installation, thus enabling a previously inexperienced contractor to build this technically complex, architecturally ambitious enclosure and complete it within budget.
