Using a modern interpretation of Art Deco which had heralded boom times, the design narrative has been heavily influenced by the historical neighborhood of The Bund district. In keeping with the surrounding historical architecture the design utilizes a neoclassical scheme that references the legacy of Shanghai’s colonial past.

The design for Bellagio Shanghai Bund is expressed through the lens of couture fashion, with reinterpreted silhouettes, textures and embellishments which pays homage to the glamour and optimism of the Art Deco era. The decadent lobby with impressive grand staircase and a color palette of dramatic creams and blacks are accented stylishly with champagne and emerald fabrics.

Ten storeys follow the direction of the Suzhou River in rhythmic stepped facades and vertical towers, with guest room vistas maximizing the panoramic views of the Pudong skyline. The towers and grand Porte Cochère are punctuated by a procession of elegant columns, while multi-functional space is designed to allow for impressive event experiences.
