In the spotlight
Resorts Conference Center
Atlantic City, NJ
To tap into the lucrative northeast convention market, Resorts Casino Hotel teamed with SOSH Architects to create the all-new Resorts Conference Center. The design team rose to the challenge of transforming a section of the historic building, formerly used as a buffet, into a leading-edge conference center, while maintaining the design integrity of the early 1900s time period. The eleven completed meeting spaces, named the Atlantic Rooms, feature the building’s original detailing and molding profiles, combined with traditional patterns and materials used in contemporary ways. Thoughtful design features include mobile partitions, modular lounge areas with outlets and USB ports, pre-function spaces with snack and coffee areas, and state-of-the-art AV and lighting controls. The end result is a multi-faceted and engaging environment that inspires productivity and big ideas. Unveiled in August 2015, the 15,000 sq. ft. conference center supports the property’s transformation into a vibrant destination which offers a variety of amenities in addition to casino gaming.

Embracing Historic
Integrity in a
Modern Project

by Kathy Rice, Interior Designer

Take a stroll down Atlantic City’s boardwalk and you can still catch of glimpse the resort town’s fascinating past. Resorts Casino Hotel is one of these historic gems that stands out among the more modern buildings developed along the world-famous Boardwalk. But like most historic buildings, renovations and expansions are required in order to stay current and relevant in changing times.

When I was put on the design team for the new Resorts Conference Center, I knew that keeping some of the key historical elements of the original space would be high on the list of priorities for this exciting project. But how do you embrace historic charm, and still create a space that is contemporary and new? The challenge is to find key elements and use them as the foundation of your design inspiration. Take traditional patterns and materials, and use them in contemporary ways. Play with scale and placement to create an exciting juxtaposition between old and new. For example, in this project we took traditional moldings and millwork and accentuated them with an unexpected paint color. We put a modern spin on traditional crystal chandeliers by plating them in cobalt blue, and enlarged a classic chevron print to create a contemporary wall covering.

Preserving a building’s historic authenticity to work in a contemporary setting can be a challenge, but you can have so much fun being creative and thinking outside the box. It’s completely worth the end result!
