Unique & Elegant Casino Design

One thing that we enjoy at I-5 Design is creating completely custom decor elements for each project. Listening to the client and drawing from inspirational photos and natural surroundings we create exclusive, one-of-a-kind venues. This casino gaming floor design is unique in its layout and atmosphere. Layered glass chandeliers with amber hued illumination adds a sense of elegance and creates an aloof feeling in comparison to the average gaming floor that is fast-paced and packed with slot machines. Adding intimacy and visual interest are the rectangle beaded metal curtain valances, with two-tone illumination, suspended above the gaming tables. From the textured fabric curtains to the specialty metal panles and columns clad with golden ledge-stone veneer, each element was custom designed for this facility and supports elegant theme and ambience.

NEW Project Portfolio – Corner Bar

Check out our newest project portfolio – Corner Bar –  Constructed of specialty-etched metal finished with a gradient of rust orange to lucky red the new facade gives the Corner Bar a dominant presence in the casino. Concealed lighting illuminates the panels, radiating a fiery glow and making this element the focal point of the design. Suspended from the new facade we added transparent cylinder shaped pendant lights, finished in an antique bronze bringing the color down in to the counter top. The glowing amber counter top brings a new hue to the scheme and combines the décor elements creating an electrifying ambiance and exhilarating bar experience.

Casino Pauma | Red Parrot Lounge | Design Development Phase

The manufacture phase for Casino Pauma is underway. Our approach to a renovation project is unique, beginning with each décor element being custom manufactured in-house at our quality controlled facility. As elements of the project are completed, we pre-assemble as many as possible so the onsite implementation happens as efficiently as possible. The Red Parrot Lounge was designed to provide a comfortable retreat for patrons. Working closely with the designers to achieve this goal, our production team brought the concept to reality with our technologically advanced systems. Many detailed components were manufactured and incorporated into the sign structure to create this monumental focal point in the lounge.  Uniting the colors and textures used throughout the casino, each component layers the sign with the orange grove motif and design theme. With communication throughout the process, the project moves seamlessly from design to production.

Casino Bar Design | Underwater Casino Design Theme

One unique quality of I-5 Design is “themed designs”. With years of experience in design and implementation, we transform your ideas into reality. From the construction and shape of each element to the color palette, every detail supports the overall design theme. This casino bar, located in the Caribbean Islands, was designed to have an underwater fantasy theme. Mimicking the oceans currents we chose blue, purple and silver shimmering hues bring the swirling patterns to life adding visual interest and supporting the overall design theme. With every detail I-5 converts imagination to implementation and creates one-of-a-kind destinations.

Casino Pauma | Exterior Casino Design Renderings

Exterior signage is a must-have element for any venue. The exterior of Casino Pauma had no brand signage and lacked the sense of welcoming patrons into the casino. I-5 designed and implemented a completely new logo into the custom manufactured entrance sign, greeting customers as they approach the casino. Utilizing the existing poles and structure we added an arched wood structure with tapered brick columns creating a dynamic Port Cochere entrance. A dimensional metal tree sculpture sits between the architectural columns, bringing the orange grove theme to life. Mounted on the columns and suspended from the arched wood beans are specialty sconces and pendant lights creating a warm and welcoming exterior environment and starting the overall design theme bringing customers into a dramatically renovated and beautifully designed casino destination.

Casino Design | Foliage Inspired Bar Design

As customers approach the bar a large anthurium printed carpet spreads across the floor providing a base for the tropical foliage theme. Through deep earth toned colors and natural elements we created a lush garden oasis to set the bar apart from the main gaming floor. Focused on the design intent, we added dimensional panels with a leaf inspired motif to offset the warm wood veneer counter facing. Branching out over the bar, a wood valance with a custom designed mural creates a covered area embellished with fuchsia pendants that inject vibrant color into the scene. The new tropical design transforms the old bar into a featured destination within the casino and creates a seamless transition into the gaming floor.
