PROJECT PROFILE AWARDS 2022 _ Virgin Hotels, Canopy Location: Las Vegas, NV Designer: Klai Juba Wald Architects, Ltd Contractor: Taylor; Subcontractor: Jones Architectural Creations Virgin Hotels, Canopy was brought to life as the defining architectural feature of the property. The blade look was achieved through clever engineering and modular construction techniques to make installation as quick as possible. Large sections of the custom finished, Rimex clad canopy were built, delivered and lifted into place to avoid the time it would take to build onsite using traditional construction techniques. The overall look is stunning to the eye and the scale of the canopy is a site to behold, while standing underneath.
