VDARA HOTEL & SPA AT MGM CITYCENTER
Las Vegas, NV
Vdara Las Vegas is a non-casino luxury resort offering both hotel and condominium-style accommodations, along with a deluxe spa and many other amenities. Guests are greeted by the sleek lighting of the tower and the welcoming glow of the entrance.
Once inside, they are met by an interior displaying an extensive art collection and a wide array of unique, custom-designed lighting fixtures. The general lighting is subdued, allowing these features and elements to predominate. Throughout the design, white LEDs in all architectural details (coves, slots, and back-lit elements) were instrumental to the project’s achievement of LEED Gold certification.
