Leemore, California

Tachi Palace Casino

Cuningham’s 24,000-square-foot remodel and expansion of the Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore, California expands and modernizes the facility, as well as creates cultural connections to its surrounding tribal land through both form and function.

The geometry of the Tachi-Yokut Tribe’s land is reflected in every element of the final design — from the floor plan to the material specifications. Grand, mushroom-shaped lighting elements spring from the floor in the casino’s table games venue, while ceiling elements with a one-of-a-kind iridescent metal finish embody the constantly changing gradients of light that exist in nature.

Included in the remodel is an expansive sports bar with large LED screens, an expanded food market, and a new high-limit room. The design also creates a more open floorplan and an updated entry area with a sculptural porte cochère that sets a welcoming tone for guests as they enter the space.

Tachi Palace Casino is planned to be completed in 2023.
