ABOUT MARNELL ARCHITECTURE
An internationally renowned architecture firm recognized by local and national publications, Marnell Companies was founded in 1982 and is known for handling planning, design, construction, development, and consulting. Still run by Tony A. Marnell—one of Sin City’s most legendary Strip architects, the firm has been honored by the Las Vegas Chapter of NEWH for extraordinary design achievements that include awards for the best hotel, best lobby, best suite, and best lounge bar. Such honors can only be achieved with a skilled team of craftsmen and the guidance of Tony A. Marnell. After earning a bachelor’s from the University of Southern California, Marnell spent two years in graduate school studying with legendary architect Professor Alfred Caldwell. The training paid off big: Marnell went on to design and build such Vegas landmarks as the Rio Hotel in 1998 and the Bellagio and became the architect of record for Wynn’s The Mirage. Marnell also served as executive design architect for the $1.1 billion Borgata casino.

, Marnell-designed projects are premium multi-million dollar projects. The Haus of Gaga in Park MGM is an example of their opulent sensibility. The gallery-slash-retail space is inspired by Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residence: futuristic themes and luxurious atmosphere perfectly encapsulates her career and products. The project costs an estimated $1.2 million.
