Beautiful Places, Balanced World

Cuningham Group Architecture Inc. exists to create beautiful places for a balanced world. Simple and eloquent, the statement embodies Cuningham Group's passion for design and its impact on clients, communities and the world.
Founded in 1968, the full-service design firm provides architecture, interior design and planning services for a diverse mix of client and project types, with significant focus over the last 20-plus years on gaming and entertainment. Bolstered by a staff of 268 in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Biloxi, Denver, San Diego, Phoenix, Seoul and Beijing, Cuningham Group provides the resources necessary to explore new ways of solving clients’ problems with dynamic and innovative design solutions that add value and advance the art of entertainment design.
The firm’s world-class portfolio—covering the spectrum from small and delicate spaces to complex and expansive projects—includes casinos, hotels, theaters, convention centers, restaurants, retail venues, master plans and support facilities for gaming and resort destinations throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Cuningham Group consistently ranks among top firms and has been honored with more than 140 industry and market awards. Notably, the firm was ranked among the “Top 5 Entertainment Firms” by Engineering News Record in 2021. Such success can be attributed to visionary clients who understand the value of great design.
As leaders in gaming and entertainment design, Cuningham Group is on the cutting edge of imagining the “casinos of the future.” Gaming continues to move through uncharted territory as technology spreads its influence over social interactions and the games people play. Shifting demographics and the younger generation’s desire for experiences that are personal, mobile and social are the challenge—and ultimately, the opportunity—facing the future of games and the facilities that house them.
Backed by a client-centered, collaborative approach called “Every Building Tells a Story,” Cuningham Group challenges clients to embrace brick-and-mortar changes that reflect the evolving nature of gaming and its customer base.
Recent projects include the new 19-story hotel for Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee; the rebranding of Harrah’s Gulf Coast Casino in Biloxi; the renovation of John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino in Sparks; and Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel in North Carolina opening in 2022. The firm also recently celebrated the groundbreaking of the $1.4 billion All Net Resort and Arena.
