Jerde Partnership

Founded: 1977
Project(s) Involved With:
  • MTV Real World Suite at The Palms Resort Casino
    • Interior Designer Las Vegas House Information: The show was filmed in a 2,900 sq. ft. "suite" created by demolishing 6 rooms on the 28th floor. The Production Offices occupied 4 surrounding rooms. The entire floor had to remain empty for 7 months to accommodate the configuration, including the 4 1/2 months of taping. The suite cost $2 million to build, and was designed by Sharmila Tankha of the Jerde Partnership, the same firm that designed the rest of the Palms. Unlike previous houses, the suite is not decorated with IKEA furnishings. The door bell to the suite is a video monitor looking out into the lobby of the floor. The Palms is now renting out the 28th floor luxury suite used in the filming of the series. -New- To take iPIX Virtual Tour of the suite in its current condition click here and follow this path: Accomodations > Guestrooms & Suites > The "Real World" Suite.
