Ho-Chunk Grill Design & Remodel in 16 Days


In May of this year, I-5 remodeled the Ho-Chunk Grill. The existing space was typical stark white walls and dated neon signs, not an inviting atmosphere for diners. I-5 provided Ho-Chunk Casino with a custom designed decor package for the Grill that introduced medium wood applications, architectural stone, other unique textures and warm amber lighting in the custom chandeliers and new signage.

The restaurant design decor package was built and pre-fabricated off-site at I-5′s facility in Lacey, Washington. Watch this video of the 16 day on-site remodel and installation and the amazing transformation that happened. Ho-Chunk Grill Design & Remodel in 16 Days

NEW Project Page | High Mountain Buffet

Photo of the new High Mountain Buffet tree element and lighting design.Coeur D’Alene Casino wanted to dramatically upgrade their buffet design to create a beautiful regional atmosphere that would be a draw in its own right, and help add to the destination’s reputation. Working with the property management, I-5 created a buffet design  that built on the existing infrastructure to transform the dining atmosphere with a fresh, natural color palette and warm finishes, inspired by the geography of the surrounding region. The original project was to remodel just the buffet, with an aggressive timeline of four weeks. The Nighthawk Lounge design was added part way through, but I-5 still finished the on-site implementation in just four weeks.
