    The Window-Eye trick
 

More Tidbits     

 

 

One Window Four Rooms

This shot clearly demonstrates the one window for four rooms trick.

I'm not sure why this is done. I can think of two reasons. To shrink the building (visually) so it's less intimidating (seems closer, less perceived walking distance) and simply as an architecturally more  pleasing design.  See how this visually affects the property here.

 

 

 

 

The Bellagio, a 32-story building disguised as a 16-story building.

 

 

  

 

 

 

Same here at Treasure Island.

  

 

 

 

 

And again at Caesars (three floors, six rooms per window).

 

  

 

 

 

Wynn uses one white stripe for every two floors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Monte Carlo does not use this trick. This building is the same size and shape as Treasure Island (above) and has a large, cluttered look. One reader calls it a "maximum security resort".
