Situated near the lake, the renovation of Casino Bregenz is an exciting work of lighting art at night. In 2014 it got a facelift: an extension was added to the terrace facing towards the Festival House, and the outer façade was given a complete facelift. Since it was one of the locations of the James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace” a world-wide audience got aware of the remarkable makeover. Especially when night falls, the shining interplay of colours is conspicuous.
The fascination is achieved by the redesigned façade, which surrounds both the existing glazed front and the annex. The flowing, slightly irregularly arranged elements made of ALUCOBOND® in bronze metallic draw the attention of the pedestrians. The LED lighting behind the façade elements complies with the strict requirements regarding nature and bird protection applicable in Bregenz and features excellent energy efficiency.
During renovation the interior was redesigned and extended as well. From inside, guests enjoy an unhampered view of the lake and are protected from curious glimpses.
