Buiding Excitement - Filipino Breeze, Solaire Resort and Casino
If ever a casino design project reflected its surroundings, it's the 1 million-square-foot Solaire Resort in Manila Bay. Opened last March, the casino resort carries the environment of its seaside location from the outside to the inside, according to Paul Steelman, principal of Steelman Partners, design architect for the project.
"Solaire is a French word meaning 'the breeze from the air,' which clearly demonstrates the inspiration behind Solaire Resort and Casino," Steelman says. Starting with the exterior design, the idea behind Solaire was to reflect "Manila Bay's famed spectacular sunset and the breeze that it brings every day."
