Hnedak Bobo Group

Thinking Differently

Aleader in the national gaming and hospitality design industry, Hnedak Bobo Group has cemented its reputation as a preferred designer of dynamic casino resort destinations and is ranked as one of the top 15 hospitality design firms in the country.
Since its founding 35 years ago, HBG has developed a reputation for design innovation and a market-driven perspective that focuses on optimizing brand presence and operational efficiency to aid clients in differentiating in today’s increasingly competitive market. A five-time G2E Casino Design Award winner, HBG finds success by connecting its passion for the gaming, entertainment and leisure markets with its clients’ bottom-line performance. The 200-plus design and industry awards the firm has received are a testament to HBG’s dedication to responsive design solutions that drive competitive advantage.
HBG is known for “thinking differently” about design. The firm brings a unique perspective through its experience as developers and owners of hospitality and mixed-use developments. The firm is one of few architecture firms working in U.S. gaming and hospitality design to own, operate and develop its own four-star hotel: a highly successful Westin hotel located within a thriving entertainment district.
HBG is uniquely positioned as one of the largest providers of professional services in the Indian gaming industry. The firm was named National Indian Gaming Association’s Associate Member of the Year in 2019, with client relationships representing some of the most recognized tribal business enterprises across the country.
Recently completed Indian gaming projects include the addition of 1,000 hotel rooms and a 119,000-square-foot casino expansion at WinStar World Casino in Oklahoma for the Chickasaw Nation; and the new 64,000-square-foot Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in New York for the Seneca Nation.
HBG recently broke ground on the highly anticipated West Valley Resort in Sells, Arizona for the Tohono O’odham Nation and is presently providing planning and design services to properties owned and operated by Ho-Chunk Gaming, an economic enterprise of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. Also breaking ground this year is HBG’s new 400-room hotel and conference facility located on the grounds of Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
