Hollywood Casino & Hotel Lawrenceburg
Formerly the Argosy Casino in Indiana, the Hollywood Casino & Hotel Lawrenceburg was designed by BDMD Architects.
Zahner provided the engineering, fabrication, and installation of the building envelope, interconnecting bridge, and decorative interior elements. Thousands of unique metal panels cover approximately 43,400 square feet of visible exterior surface. An elevated walkway, designed to replicate the region’s historic structural steel trestle bridges, is clad in a painted aluminum metal system by Zahner. Interior panels, decorative ceiling rings, and faux duct hangers were completed to the same exacting standards as exterior elements.
Designed by YWS Architects of Las Vegas, Nevada, Zahner provided the engineering and fabrication of two large winged stainless steel elements at the northeast side entry of the casino. These 'wings' are constructed of steel tubing and aluminum ZEPPS Components, and were clad with an aluminum sheet sub-surface and then finished with stainless steel skins.Each of the wings were finished with a different alloy of stainless steel, to create a color distinction between the two. The east wing was finished using a brushed stainless steel surface. The west wing with PVD coated stainless steel panels for a copper hue.The project uses Ti-Stainless or PVD Coated Stainless, a high-performance surface that can be used to achieve gold, copper, bronze, and brass tones in stainless steel. The material is now available to the architectural community, and has a longer lifespan than similar metals such as anodized aluminum.
