Erik Wunstell's Photo-Guide to the Encore Interior

Erik Wunstell - The Photographer of These Wynn Encore Las Vegas Hotel Photos.
Erik Wunstell © 2005-2009

To E-Mail Me.

My name is Erik Wunstell. Welcome to my West Vegas website - a photo documentation of 21st Century Las Vegas.
I've been a Las Vegas photographer and historian since 1974 and have lived here since 1997. This website is my
way of showing people all the amazing changes happening in this incredible city. I also run InOldLasVegas.com.

I love photography and great architecture. So, for the last ten years I've been documenting the work of Steve Wynn's
hotels; in my free-lance manner. Wynn's new Encore opened on December 22nd, 2008 at 9PM. My camera and I
went to the hotel at 6 AM, the next morning, to see what Steve Wynn has accomplished this time around.

Quite honestly, I must say that I have never been so overwhelmingly impressed, by a Las Vegas hotel, in my entire
life - having seen prior openings of 1973's MGM, Bellagio, Venetian, Mandalay Bay, Paris, Palms and Red Rock.

The Encore is beyond belief! It is a living piece of art. As the second part of the Wynn Resort, Encore perfectly
completes the hotel-complex by making the resort a city in itself. Every step I took led to something extraordinary.
And everywhere I looked presented a stunning new sight of opulent beauty. My feelings towards the Encore can't
be summed up with mere words. Words can only fail to describe this manmade wonder. Which...after all...is why
I take photographs and show them on this website.

In the coming days I will be adding over 100 photos of the interior details on the Encore Hotel. I was only able to
spend 40 minutes there and could barely capture the cornucopia of imagery. But, what I saw will surely impress
you as it did me. If dreams could come true I'd spend a month there taking in all the sights, since it takes awhile
to absorb all there is to see. Somehow, Steve Wynn has created the most intimate and romantic resort in Las Vegas.
How he ever accomplished this feat is beyond me. Encore might be the most luxurious hotel on Earth. I wouldn't know.
Hopefully, my photos can do Encore slight justice. But, you'll have to visit there in person - to be as blown away as I was.

ROGER THOMAS - DESIGNER

Wynn's Director of Design is Roger Thomas. Roger designed the remodeling of the Golden Nugget, as well as the Mirage,
Treasure Island, Bellagio, Wynn Vegas and Encore. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the 'Hospitality
Design Platinum Circle'. Last year he was profiled and listed in 'Architectural Digest's Top 100'. His desert home can be seen here.

In college, he majored in interior design & art - as well as sculpting, textiles, ceramics & even goldsmithing! His sensibility is seen
throughout Encore. Working as a team, Steve Wynn - the Artistic General - and Roger Thomas have created a monument to design.

Encore Corridors.

Corridors are well-placed along the edges of the casino floor, eliminating the confusion and disorientation so common
in most large Las Vegas hotels. This corridor leads to the Sinatra restaurant or registration desk & room elevators.

Indoor Tree.

In Encore there is some form of artistic design everywhere you look...like this indoor tree. Combined with
the Atrium at the Wynn hotel, this resort is a botanical wonderland, never seen in Las Vegas, till now.

Encore's walls of glass allow plenty of natural outdoor light to give the casino a feeling of openness,
breaking the long-held casino tradition of keeping patrons in the dark. Two huge pools await guests just
beyond these windows - the main rectangular pool and also the curved pool set further back near the XS nightclub.
That pool surrounds the Island Bar & Casino, which allows poolside gaming & European sunbathing.
