AD100 designer Roger Thomas worked on casino mogul Steve Wynn’s 300-foot super yacht Aquarius. Thomas, who serves as the executive vice president of design for Wynn Design & Development, collaborated on interiors that exude the duo’s signature sophistication without sacrificing a shred of comfort.
Aquarius is the latest in Thomas and Wynn’s 35-year-long design partnership, one that has produced numerous hotels (Wynn Las Vegas or the newly opened Wynn Palace Cotai in Macau), residences (there’s Wynn’s Manhattan duplex, featured in Architectural Digest’s March 2014 issue, or his Las Vegas home, featured in 2010), and, you guessed it, yachts. As is typical of their design process, it all started with a “lively discussion about [Wynn’s] concepts, priorities, and big idea,” says Thomas. In this case, the goal was to craft interiors that emphasized the boat’s unparalleled panoramic views (the product of oversize windows), high ceilings, and open floor plan, while adhering to hospitality principles cultivated over three decades in the hotel industry.
“With 35 years of working together on hotel design, we have a way of working that considers every guest comfort and places us in the guest state of mind, so that conveniences are always considered,” says Thomas. Think clothing and luggage storage, places for jewelry and pocket change, and charging stations for the electronic accessories of modern life, to name just a few of the yacht’s guest-friendly features.
Thomas sourced a number of furnishings from one of Wynn’s favorite designers, Hervé Van der Straeten.
Illuminating all of these details is an extensive system of architectural lighting—1,047 LED fixtures to be exact—that helps brighten interior and exterior spaces while adhering to the stringent codes of naval architecture. For this aspect of the project, Wynn and Thomas called on Tom Kowalczuk, who oversees lighting for Wynn Design & Development.
