Paradise Casino Incheon
The team of casino designers at HBA Los Angeles was challenged to create the largest property of its kind in Korea. The resort’s proximity to the bustling hub of the Incheon International Aiport in Seoul, Korea, was inspiration enough for the designers to recreate a world traveler theme.
The team completed five casino zones and five restaurants. Each gaming zone represents a fashion capital: Paris, Rome, London, New York, and Seoul. The color palette of reds, blues, and golds is sure to appeal to fashionistas and travelers worldwide.
This new construction Baotou Pullman Hotels and Resorts is a sophisticated interweaving of Baotou‘s rich Mongolian heritage and a prominent new place as a hub for technology. The interior spaces are designed to encourage social interactions, both casual and formal. The backdrop for these important interactions is provided by beautiful interpretations of geometric patterns reminiscent of ancient yurts, natural crystal forms, and now modern technology.
The restaurant spaces bring the grand scale of the prairie to the hearth with traditional barrel and yurt shapes.
In the guest rooms, layers of traditional woven rug patterns in rich royal tones open up to a technologically inspired space. The art package was assembled to inspire the majestic grandeur and diverse beauty of the Mongolian experience.
