Designed by Hong Kong architects Dennis Lau and Ng Chun Man. Grand Lisboa is a 47-floor, 260 meter tall hotel. It is owned by Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau.
Built next to a preceding complex built in 1970 by Stanley Ho, head of a gambling empire and the richest man in Macau. The tower is designed to represent the spirit of Macau through the use of a fantastical architectural style illustrating the opening petals of the lotus flower. The lotus is the official emblem of Macau Special Administrative Region.
The building is the 277th tallest in the world and the 155th tallest in Asia and was the tallest in Macau until the nearby Macau Tower was built. The hotel contains 430 hotel rooms and suites and the casino offers 800 gaming tables and 1,000 slot machines.
Everything about the design of the Grand Lisboa is to do with extremes – extreme height, glamour and opulence.
