City of Dreams, located in the heart of Cotai in Macao, is a unique integrated entertainment resort that combines electrifying entertainment, a diverse array of accommodation, regional and international dining, designer-brand shopping, and a spacious and contemporary gaming area. Morpheus, the new addition to City of Dreams in 2018, sets a new benchmark for ultra-luxury hospitality in Macao.
Morpheus – offering 770 rooms, suites and villas, is the icon of Cotai’s skyline. It comprises two towers with a total of 39 floors, connected at both the podium levels and the roof. A series of voids gives it sophistication and volume along with a distinctive appearance as well as exciting internal space.
The hotel design is led by Zaha Hadid, founder of Zaha Hadid Architects and recipient of the 2004 Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Dragages Macau is responsible for the construction of this one-of-a-kind hotel, which represents the realisation of a “dream” building. The volume is emphasised with the use of an exposed exoskeleton mesh structure. The expressed structure defines a sensuous and intriguing form while also providing the construction advantage of contributing to the building’s lateral stability, reducing the internal structural requirements and optimising the interior layout.
A comprehensive variety of facilities can be found in Morpheus, including Michelin-starred restaurants and an infinity swimming pool some 130 metres above the ground.
