Chumash Casino Resort

Santa Ynez, California


583,149 SF (New Construction) 169,149 SF (Renovation)

The design and space planning for Chumash Casino Resort was focused on enhancing the excellent amenities already in place and added new and exciting spaces for the guest to enjoy including an expanded casino floor, new food & beverage outlets, a hotel tower expansion of 200+ new guestrooms and suites, a new 20,000 SF Resort pool and more guest parking with a new parking structure to accommodate 584 parking spaces.

The steel structured hotel tower spans above the existing hotel and an existing creek. Guests check into the existing but remodeled lobby with a new elevator core taking them to the new tower. The existing casino and hotel remained in full operation during all phases of construction.

The design is a balance of the existing building’s aesthetic with an updated, exciting atmosphere to expand the target audience. Our goal was to unify elements of the Resort with added amenities to create a seamless transition and to showcase Chumash excellence.
