Opening next month, this Zaha Hadid designed Macau hotel looks like something straight out of Star Wars

The latest architectural wonder by Zaha Hadid Architects is Macau’s Morpheus hotel which opens its doors to guests on June 15. The hotel is part of the City of Dreams development by Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited. The stunning building was designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid and is worth a whopping USD 1.1 billion.

The structure has that futuristic, otherworldly quality that was integral to so much of Hadid’s work. The exoskeleton, in particular, has a uniqueness to it as it wraps to fit the contours of the building.

The bridge-like structures at the core of the building are utilized as communal dining and lounge spaces while the upper seven floors contain VIP gaming facilities, three pool villas and six duplex villas and a partially covered rooftop swimming pool.

On the ground floor, you can indulge your sweet tooth at the Pierre Hermé Paris Lounge or head to one of the property’s three restaurants (two are by Alain Ducasse) for a quick bite.

The building boasts no less than 12 elevators adding to the ultra-futuristic feel of the place. Their Spa goes one step further with its own Snow Garden apparently equipped with real snow.

We’ll be waiting for a closer look at this curious property come June.
