Four Winds Casino
New Buffalo, Michigan
Four Winds New Buffalo is a casino resort located near Lake Michigan in the southwest corner of the state. The resort property features a 415-room hotel and seasonal outdoor pool.
The goal of the project was to create a unique design for the seasonal outdoor cabana bar, incorporating natural elements and symbols of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indian tribe. The bar front features 18x18 Betona tile from Genesee, custom designed with a cattail motif. Coastal Keystones mosaic tile from Daltile was installed on the outdoor shower wall and as an accent in the toilet rooms. The bar top and bathroom counter tops are granite in a satin finish called Trailing Vines from Terazzo & Marble. A color palette reflecting nature includes Sherwin Williams paints called Wickerwork, Decorous Amber, Tony Taupe, Downy and Griffin.
