The important retrofit project of the Casino de Montréal, which spread over four years, responded to the challenge of simplifying the building's indoor and outdoor circulations, improving the quality of the gambling, recreational and dining areas as well as providing a thematic unity to the different designs.
A rare occurrence for this type of project, the Casino's redevelopment was transformed into a true experimental laboratory. A special research and development budget was planned to develop and test new materials, structures and lightings. This creativity was led to change the traditional perception of the space's functionality. The walls became signs, ambient lighting and visual identity support.
The interior design team of Provencher_Roy (Moureaux Hauspy Design), collaborated on the interior redesign of the whole project, including the entrances, gambling areas, common areas and the VIP zone. It appointed the firm Blazysgerard to work on redesigning the restaurants on Level 5.
