BARNEYS LAS VEGAS
JHA translated the elegance of Barneys New York for the excitement and intensity of Las Vegas in the outpost’s 81,000 square-foot emporium that opened in 2008 within the Palazzo Casino and Hotel complex. Three floors feature a recurring theme of modern-baroque detailing mixed with clean shapes and lines. A patterned ceiling and a dramatic spiral staircase convey brash opulence on the ground floor. Around the perimeter of the top two floors, JHA designed a 45-foot fritted glass box carved with a sunburst pattern using stylized versions of card symbols (such as hearts, spades, and diamonds)—in keeping with the Las Vegas vernacular.
