The design is a synthesis between the classical Monaco type casino’s and the larger American venues. The building is shaped as four tapered towers on the corner of a square in the hart of Utrecht. The ground floor opens up to the city as piazza for public events. The first floor houses three gambling salons for table players under huge cupolas. The second floor is a continuous field of gambling machines. The building is clad with a pattern of filigree metal stars; its appearance will change overnight by integrated façade lighting.
