Three holes punctuate the twisting geometric facade of the Morpheus hotel in Macau, China, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, which opens today, 15 June 2018. Morpheus, a new flagship hotel for the City of Dreams resort in Macau, opens Friday 15 June 2018.


Asia’s most popular entertainment destination, Macau welcomed more than 32 million tourists in 2017, with visitor numbers increasing every year. Located in Cotai, Macau, City of Dreams is a leading integrated resort including casino, two theatres, shopping district, 20 restaurants and four hotels.

Informed by the fluid forms within China’s rich traditions of jade carving, the Morpheus’ design combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion.

Linked at ground level with the surrounding three-storey podium of the City of Dreams resort, the Morpheus houses 770 guest rooms, suites and sky villas, and includes civic spaces, meeting and event facilities, gaming rooms, lobby atrium, restaurants, spa and rooftop pool, as well as extensive back-of-house areas and ancillary facilities.

According to ZHA announcement Morpheus Hotel’s Environmental Engineering has minimized solar gain by the use of high performance glazing.

The building's exoskeleton provides additional screening from the sun. The atrium's middle areas are not served by air conditioning, only zones used by guests and staff - such as lobbies, bridges and restaurants - are air conditioned.

Melco Resorts has applied long-life specification throughout the Morpheus Hotel to strictly limit requirements for maintenance and replacement. All the hotel’s exterior panel fabrication was procured locally to the highest international standards, reducing unnecessary transportation and making full use of local expertise and equipment.

Additional active solutions have been implemented to increase energy efficiencies including the air handling units with high efficiency variable speed water-cooled chillers and thermal wheel energy exchangers to recover energy from exhaust air.

A water-to-water heat pump pre-heats domestic water, while the hotel’s intelligent building management system responds in real time to usage and environmental conditions to minimise energy consumption.
