Casino’s Design: Futuristic Architecture Depicted in 10 Buildings

Land-based casino’s architecture attracts attention as their design and features are created specifically for this. While some believe that the very idea is somewhat vintage, many of the world’s most glamorous resorts give the exact opposite impression.

In the past years, notable projects took place for casino buildings. We’ve compiled a list of the most eye-catching casino architectural designs worldwide and where to find them.

1.    Germany’s oldest casino: Casino Baden-Baden

Casino Baden- Baden is the oldest land-based casino in Germany. The casino shows the aesthetic signature of the Karlsruhe architect Friedrich Weinbrenner that made its design for the architecture based on Roman antiquity.

The Palace of Versailles was a reference point for the unique architectural concept that you can experience today. You can find the neo-classical style and Corinthian columns in the overall architectural design of the casino.

Initially, the building was a Spa, but it developed into the grand casino building that attracts sightseers for their slots and games and unique architecture and interior design. Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s inspiration for the ‘The Gambler’ was his visit to the casino.

The three buildings are broader at the base and narrow as they rise. Each building has two asymmetric legs, with a curved eastern portion leaning against the other.

Each tower slab structure is also twisted slightly with its pair, creating a dance-like relationship between the two parts, accentuating the slenderness of the buildings. Hence, it looks like there are six towers rather than three. The casino has a central atrium with four levels of gaming and entertainment in one space.

The layered gardens provide ample green space throughout Marina Bay Sands, extending the tropical garden landscape from Marina City Park towards the Bayfront. In this way, it reinforces urban connections with the resort’s surroundings. The public can access every level of the district that has green spaces.

When you look closely, you’ll see some little nooks and gaps in the building’s construction, though it seems more uniform from a distance and certain angles. This design becomes more interesting every time you see a new photo. Gamblers can find over 40 gaming tables.

It is full of curving halls, rounded rooms, and an exterior that resembles a giant semi-metallic sculpture hovering over the river. The casino’s core comprises tiered, circular central areas on several floors. Still, you can find the complex network of additional public spaces at each level.

The building is divided into three levels, naturally integrating the building with the environment. The casino’s structure forms an integral part of the hotel garden by its configuration, mostly buried beneath the ground.

The design succeeds in revitalizing the south face of the Monterrey complex and enhances the urban perimeter by delivering a wide zone for recreational use and services.
