Is This A Wynn Palace VIP Lobby?

Design firm Bukhari Design Studio, collaborators with Wynn Resorts on multiple projects in the U.S. and Macau, have posted a curious rendering in their portfolio gallery that contains a clue that this may very well be a conceptual rendering of the forthcoming Wynn Palace property coming to Cotai, Macau.

Big huge props to VT superfriend stevecovington for the thoroughly incredible detective work.

Take a closer look and you'll see why this is Wynn Palace. Here's a hint. Ok, four hints.

Jackpot is right behind the registration desk. Four vases = four registration areas, mass market, junket, VIP, whales.

Like the carpet that Jeff Lebowski's room (and life) together and the painting that inspired Wynn Las Vegas and Encore, so does this quartet of 18th century porcelain vases Wynn purchased for $12.8m dollars in 2011.

The carpet, the colors, the prints, the moulding, the everything.

And there's feng shui... when checking in, you walk through the Chinese symbol for prosperity radiated from the lower corners of a new piece from the Roger Thomas Collection.

And there's tassels.

Macau really is a thoroughly fascinating place. It looks like Vegas, feels like Vegas, but is draped in Chinese iconography for fortune, luck and prosperity... a strange, magical land of mystical voodoo. There really is no place in the world like it.

Great sleuthing, Chuck.

Interesting how remarkably similar Bukhari's logo is to the Wynn crest.

RogThom take me away.

Delicious. And let's not even get started with the Encore Macau private gaming design porn.

Isn't 4 a death symbol in Chinese cultures?

No, the word for four in Chinese sounds like the word for death. This isn't a 4.

First finding all those Macau VIP gaming photos felt like hitting the jackpot, but the second I saw this I knew we hit paydirt

It's fascinating to watch the evolution of design from each resort. Absolutely love this.

When combined with the room renderings leaked on YouTube and the renderings of the gaming areas, Wynn Palace will be amazing.

^^ My bad. Cool designs though.

@stevecovington - I must have missed a few things... 'YouTube room renderings' and 'renderings of the gaming areas'? Do you have links?

Wynn Palace Gaming Area?

Wynn Palace Guest Room?


The color palate is a lot more soft than that of Wynn Macau, at least in these photos. A lot more restrained.

An interesting approach considering how the Chinese market typically likes very bold colors (particularly red), but I guess Steve and Roger are trying to differentiate the properties.

I admit that in terms of visual taste, the MGM Macau is more my kind of thing appearance-wise (and I look forward to see what MGM Cotai looks like), but Wynn's restaurants and gaming and service and FREE BOOZE FOR PLAYERS and luxury hotel rooms make Wynn the best overall provider in Macau by my reckoning... even if some parts of the Wynn Macau (the Encore expansion specifically) are very... erm... "designed for Chinese tastes" (i.e. eye-gougingly over the top).

Thanks Steve!

No problem!

This is evidently the real deal as it is now missing from the portfolio . lol
