The Associate Dining Room at the MotorCity Casino & Hotel was dramatically re-designed to bring the atmosphere of a coffee house to the corporate setting, while creating a sense of community for the staff. The layout of modular furniture allows flexibility to accommodate small and/or large groups. Bold colors and architectural forms distinguish the custom designed areas on the food line. The palette provides wayfinding representation of the client’s brand.
Well-lit community tables bring energy to the space. Calmer illuminated lounge areas were created to form serenity. Architectural cloud design evokes personal space while contributing to the overall acoustics. Surrounding planters provide area separation, contribute to the visual relief and promote a natural habitat.
Interactive stations promote connectivity through technology, a reprieve which sustains an involved community with a more focused taskforce. This dynamic setting engages employees, increases wellness and enhances the user experience.
