River boat gambling was taken to a new level as the Michigan City Indiana Casino, Blue Chip set out for a large scale expansion project. The addition features a 22 story hotel tower with an event convention space, conference/meeting rooms, a 10,000 square foot spa, and 302 upscale guest rooms. The front of the original casino was revamped with a drive up port cochere entry to the main lobby, which showcases beautiful interior spaces shown through the glass front along the driveway. The structure simply sparkles at night from skylight cutouts that house large scale chandeliers covered with a bell shaped shades which glow from color changing linear LED fixtures tucked in a cove around the skylight.
The tower shows off its unique blue-green glass with a soft glow of uplight at the bottom and a blue LED line of light that defines the curved glass on the main structure. White linear LED fixtures were used to accentuate the vertical banding on the side tower and around the back portion of the tower. The concrete top portion features LED color changing uplights to wash the surface with a splash of color that can be seen for miles around the town.
