Experimental in concept, Mings Dim Sum is a restaurant on Crown’s first floor that sits nestled within the Casino’s broader gaming offer. Red Design Group established a design concept for the restaurant and the surrounding gaming area.
Ming’s design solution was inspired by traditional oriental décor, to reference the cultural experience of eating Chinese food. In keeping with Red’s philosophy of respecting existing design language, a mural installation by renowned graphic artist, the late David Band was retained from the previous fit out.
The gaming and dining offer is open in its layout, but there are clear demarcation design cues. Floor treatment, in particular, has been used to segment the gaming offer from the hospitality offer. Richly layered wall treatments and screens reinforce the notion of separate areas while maintaining visual openness.
