This casino resort set out to merge familiar classical elements and contemporary details to create the framework for an upscale gaming experience. Aligning their vision with providing a luxury, European-style atmosphere, each space throughout the property has its own special feature that offers the guests memorable moments during their visit.

JoyceLynn Lagula’s design experience while at Wilson Associates.
Taking a typical casino floor plan in quadrants and playing up the pathway nodes with elegant chandeliers is a simple, yet effective way to create points of interest.
Adding a lower ceiling layer over the table pits with the same classical language that lines the walkways contributes to the strong symmetry of the project and showcases the table games on the 'runway.'
Relying heavily on the details and material consistency enables the visual and spatial connections to happen as the guests traverse through the property. Playing up the rhythmic portals set through the space, punctuated by framed coffered chandeliers giving it a more contemporary vibe with traditional geometries.
A classy and comfortable casino bar right off the floor was important to the client. Introducing metal chain drapery to gently define the bar space from the gaming space was an effective design move for the project.
Big fixtures engulf this double height space combining lighting and art sculpture elements.
Paying homage to the thought of gambling itself as a religion, the architectural vaulted ceiling is reminiscent of many traditional churches but adds a mystical grandeur that leaves the guest in awe at the sheer volume of this vast space.
Elevated finishes and featured table games were the focus of this high limit space. Part of this exclusive amenity are the flexible private gaming rooms beyond the colonnade.
The center bar is more than just a bar, it is an event. Designed within the cathedral space, screening was placed instead of a the traditional back bar to keep the visual connection and energy flowing through the space.
