In relocating, AGA’s main goal was to modernize the space so it provides a more leading-edge view of the gaming industry. The intent was to provide a clean look with added flair to create an interesting, vibrant workplace. But this presented a challenge: how do you take the design aesthetic of Las Vegas and apply it to a place where staff can be productive and clients and members enjoy visiting?
To address this concern, the design incorporated gaming industry elements as if living within a game in a tasteful manner. The ceiling from reception through the pantry draws one through the space, mimicking the configuration of a roulette table and the wedged slots. There is also a ticker – complete with betting lines, odds and scores that are constantly updated – that runs throughout the office that establishes movement and flow all the way down the main circulation corridor. In addition, slot machines were donated from a manufacturer to serve as a display of who AGA represents and artwork and graphics are all related to the industry.
Another important driver for AGA’s office was having the ability to host events and provide a fun atmosphere for its members and staff. The main conference room opens up completely to reception so AGA can entertain within a larger space. The design also included an inviting, impromptu conference space adjacent to the workstation area; the poker table set up here allows for a small meeting to take place – or a game of poker.Back to Blog
