Sands Bethlehem

The attached sketches were made by Mark Ottmann while working as a post-employee consultant to Ewing Cole for a project at the Sands Bethlehem Casino in Eastern Pennsylvania. The design objective was to recreate a sense of the energy and imagery of the historic steel mill, recently restored as a Sands Casino. The proposed solution was to create a soaring flow of brightness that evoke the imagery of molten steel and shooting sparks. Beyond infusing and warming the cavernous ceiling the swirling path of light would also unify the complex casino floor plan.
