HB ON THE SCENE: Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Presents 21 Penthouses

NEW YORK—Twenty-one luxury penthouses by three distinct interior designers—that’s one of the latest projects coming to a close at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Slated to be completed by the end of this year, the Boulevard Penthouses will be situated in the hotel’s 51-story Boulevard Tower. The individual penthouses will range in size from 2,000 sq. ft. to 5,000 sq. ft., spanning a total of approximately 63,000 sq. ft.

The resort, located on the Las Vegas Strip, showcased renderings of the new suites at an exclusive event yesterday in NoHo. On hand, besides members of the press, were the designers of the penthouses: Adam D. Tihany, Tihany Design; Daun Curry; and George Meikle, Richmond International.

The Cosmopolitan gave each of the designers seven suites to work with. The designers of all three firms worked separately throughout the process to avoid any crossover. They presented the renderings to each other for the first time about a year ago.

In an attempt to capture the surrounding area and “match the inside with the outside,” the color scheme of Richmond’s suites include cobalt blue and teal, explained Meikle, an associate designer at the firm, in an interview with Hotel Business.

“The inspiration mainly came from the city of Las Vegas itself,” he said. “We were trying to capture that energy and some of the attitude.”

Curry drew her inspiration for one of the schemes from “curiosity and adventure.” In general, she admitted to being inspired by the 70s and 80s, “and especially that time in Vegas, so that was kind of the glamorous aspect. I think in all of my designs, across the board, you see a little bit of that because that’s who I am,” she said. “I’m a child of the 70s and 80s, and so that’s nostalgic and comfortable for me.”

Curry’s collaboration with the Cosmopolitan marked her debut into the world of hospitality. She currently doesn’t have any other hospitality projects in the works.

In addition to having designed his portion of the suites, Tihany, known for his hotel and dining interiors around the globe, also had his hands in the creation of the private gaming salon, which will be available exclusively for these guests.

“It’s traditional in style, except that the furnishing is ultra contemporary,” he said. “You have a little bit of this dichotomy. It’s a private club within this exclusive complex.”
