At the Chinook Winds Casino and Resort, located in Lincoln City, Oregon, I-5 Design recently completed an amazing upgrade for the Siletz Bay Buffet. Working with the existing curved structure of the venue, we created a design that enhanced the visibility from the gaming floor, as well as added interest and excitement. Suspended ceiling beams in a deep cherry wood finish, with concealed red LED lighting radiate outward from the center of the buffet, and provide a warm glow that invites patrons in. Corresponding with the overall red hued color palette, the ceiling-mounted entrance signage features internally illuminated push-through letters on a custom, integrated metal face in a deep burgundy tone. Surrounding the perimeter of the seating area, a curved half wall clad with architectural cultured stone and tapered dividing pillars inset with specialty etched metal, and topped with decorative caps provide effective screening from the queue line. Above the hostess counter, a multi-layered circular element with custom metal to tie into the half walls provides interest and reflects the shape of the tile below. An amber mica chandelier suspended from the center of the ceiling feature illuminates the imetal above and replicates the mica chandeliers throughout the interior of the buffet. Inside the buffet, the same style wood beams with concealed LED lighting mantle the ceiling; while the custom designed carpet adds a natural feel and complements the colors found in the interior artwork. New equipment and furniture was also included to create a uniform and upscale atmosphere. Through extensive coordination between I-5 Design and the casino personnel, the entire remodel was able to be performed quickly and during closed hours, allowing the buffet to remain open throughout the renovation process.
