Salon Privé, River Rock’s high-limit slots area is now complete and we’re excited to share some photos of the project with you. We have a long working relationship with Great Canadian Gaming Corporation designing gaming resorts across the country, so it was no surprise when they approached us to reimagine this important area in the River Rock.
Our task was to create an exclusive VIP access area that was distinct from the gaming floor but still reflective of River Rock’s brand. Our focus was elegant luxury. First step: create separation without creating any physical barrier to customer flow. We elevated the salon above the main gaming floor and placed a low-profile reception desk to anchor the entrance and so staff can manage access politely. The minimalist reception desk also plays off quality marble, subtle signage and soft lighting accents.
We chose aubergine with taupe and gold accents to create a luxurious palette that appeals to both Western and Eastern cultures – and is timeless and relaxing. A dynamic pattern of fragmented mirror and minimalistic lighting lends modernism to the walls which we carried onto screens that provided scale and privacy to sections of the salon. The thick-cut pile carpet is custom designed to create a strong sense of movement and contrast. The casual bar and bathroom makes a statement in black: black quartz for the bar top (with some fantastic Tom Dixon lighting) and washrooms finished in black stone.
It’s always a pleasure to design for a client who understands their brand and the role interior design can play to deliver on their brand promise, as well as excellence in customer service. Great Canadian Gaming Corporation understands modern hospitality service and we understand modern hospitality design. The results speak for themselves. I hope you agree.
