Renovations at Seneca Niagara Casino brought a warm, modern sophistication to the city’s gaming environment. In areas of the resort that had the highest retention, SOSH Architects embarked on various projects to develop, design, and remodel. Some of the most impressive endeavors include the Thunder Falls Buffet, Chairman’s Lounge, and high-limit gaming tables. But the eye-catching entry (seen here) sets up the entire environment.
To become a sweeping, bustling hub, its design underwent multiple sketches and renderings—each continually building in momentum until it became a prize of a project. “The concept emphasized how to personalize a 100,000-square-foot area so patrons feel warmth,” said Nory Hazaveh, principal at the firm. “Lighting, movement, wood tones, carpet design, and variety help patrons to experience the space on their own terms. We also emphasized playfulness on the ceiling.”
