A labyrinth of pleasures

Studio City is the hotel and casino resort in Macau. It is Asia’s first leisureresort to integrate television and film production facilities, gaming and shopping while offering luxury accommodation in its 1,600 rooms.

The 3.2 billion dollar project, located on Cotai Strip, opened in 2015. It is claimed to be one of the world’s very best global entertainment, iconic landmarks and resort experiences.

Architect Brad Friedmutter headquartered in Las Vegas has been responsible for some of the most expensive integrated resorts and casinos in the world and oversaw the design of the Studio City resort.

Set against a backdrop of Art Deco-inspired architecture, Studio City is a magnificent resort which encompasses a labyrinth of pleasures: a glamorous twin tower hotel, the very best entertainment venues for world-class performances, a global range of dining options, spectacular gaming areas and a wonderland of luxury shopping, all designed to bring the visitor’s wildest imagination to life. It also includes the “Golden Reel”, Asia’s highest Ferris wheel which straddles the hotel towers at a height of some 130 metres.

Obviously, the interiors are designed to reflect the different activities and atmospheres within, bearing in mind the noise and excitement which can be created by the chatter of thousands of visitors. Consequently, 6,300 sqm of Troldtekt acoustic panels were specified for three particular areas – the Flying theatre, the very large Entertainment area and the TV studio – to absorb sound and provide the ideal environment. They were specified from Troldtekt’s Hong Kong distributor, Eurasia Architectural Products.
