In collaboration with Goddard Group, Hetzel Design designed Studio City hotel towers and the podium exterior architecture. The art deco scheme is a nostalgic nod to the golden era of Hollywood. We included our first sketch, schematic level renderings, and construction photos to show the evolution of the idea.

Studio City Macau is Asia's first resort to integrate television and film production facilities, retail, gaming and hotels. It is jointly developed by U.S. investment firms Silver Point Capital LP and Oaktree Capital Management LLC and a Hong Kong entertainment company, eSun Holdings Ltd. The resort’s two hotel towers (The Star Tower and the Celebrity Tower), housing 1600 rooms, are connected by the Golden Reel, the world’s first figure-8 ferris wheel. Studio City Macau is set to hold its grand opening on October 27, 2015
