Some info about the project.
Client: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Size: 35,000 sf
Date Completed: March 2011
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas leased a 35,000 sf building to house many of their operations departments and Resort Services call center. Because this facility has 9 different departments that all need to work together at varying levels of interaction, the owner desired a space that encouraged collaboration, was flexible, and was not a stereotypical open office environment. Many organizing themes/ideas were put to the test.
Through a series of workshops, APTUS and the Cosmopolitan team identified both good and bad precedence, program elements, goals, needs, functional adjacencies, imagery, etc. Each workshop had a specific focus and helped us guide the owner group through the process step-by-step. Workshop 1 focused on adjacency studies and inspirational/ precedence studies. Through the use of bubble diagramming, pieces of the program were physically created with paper and laid out on a table for the owner group to work with. APTUS then took these adjacencies and translated them into organizational diagrams within the confines of the shell building. Once an organizational scheme was selected, a floor plan was then created and refined over several workshops.
