Jack Casino Lighting Upgrade

Jack Entertainment | Cleveland , Ohio
Jack Cleveland Casino is located in the former Higbee Building at Tower City Center in downtown Cleveland. It has 100,000 SF of gaming space for guests to enjoy. The casino has over 1,600 slot machines, 119 table games, 28 poker tables, and 35 electronic table games. It’s also a place to enjoy good company and excellent food, affording guests with a few restaurant options. Osborn was tasked with redesigning the Jack Casino’s lighting, an environment with unique challenges. The lighting design mainly focused on the three casino floors and also a lower level, which features a food buffet. In the main gaming area, decorative luminaires provided a historical elegance to the space and were refurbished to remain in place. Downlights at ceiling clouds were replaced with new LED fixtures, giving higher output and wider distribution. Another layer of lighting will be added to the space to give direct lighting to the tables and gaming machines. An uplight feature will be used to light up surrounding Illuminated fabric panels at the edges of the room. Different light layers are used around the space to provide uniform lighting and to illuminate walls, particularly in low light areas. For the lower level, we proposed different layers of lighting meant to provide uniform light levels at all tables. Luminaries include modern, decorative lighting to provoke a warm, relaxing feeling, wall sconces to provide vertical illumination, and wall grazers to highlight murals and frames. For the buffet itself, we used vertical and horizontal lighting to allow the guests to choose their food with ease. This lighting, LED track lighting with higher color rendering qualities, also serves to make the food more appealing. In the poker rooms, downlights with surface or recessed decorative fixtures will provide necessary light levels to tables. Wall to ceiling linear LED fixtures will provide more lighting to surrounding areas and highlight the rich wood interior. Finally, to make the lobby area more welcoming, cove lighting and small, sparkly decorative fixtures were proposed.
