Our Approach

Plan & Design

I-5 Design drew inspiration from the surrounding countryside as well as tribal heritage to create an indian casino design. The end result was a modern spin on Native American architecture and combining it with a Southwestern flair, welcoming customers, and telling the tribes' story.


The exterior of the casino was re-designed to include two new entrances that incorporate immense stone pillars and dramatic, programmable lighting accents along the building elevations. This produced an umistakeable visual element that tied into the branding efforts of the casino and created a landmark from the adjacent highway.

Inside, a multi-tiered valance envelopes the gaming floor and is distinctive for its unique profile and carefully chosen wood and metal accents. The deep purple, high-gloss finish, specialty beaten copper metal accents, and stained cherry wood veneer create a handsome, colorful combination. The valance’s third tier is illuminated with integrated LED cove lighting that is concealed in the valance and casts a changing spectrum of intense color onto the soffit above

Onsite Construction

I-5 completed the implementation from start to finish in just 4 months with no significant downtime to the casino. Throughout the entire project, I-5’s design, manufacturing and installation teams worked closely together to pre-fabricate the decor elements.

This included custom chandeliers, perimeter valances with fully programmable color changing accent lighting, entire bar overhang, complete signage package, etc. to enable a streamlined and efficient installation. All of this allowed the casino to stay open and generate revenue throughout the transformation.

Finished Project

To accommodate the fast pace of the casino's schedule, I-5 managed the entire changeover from concept to completion and oversaw all aspects of the project. 

Each individual areas was transformed in weeks instead of months onsite. For example, the entire bar area transformation, a key feature of the property, was transformed in only 2 weeks onsite.  Casino Management reported an immediate 18% increase in revenues.
