Cuningham Group


Cuningham Group Architecture, Inc. exists to create beautiful places for a balanced world. Simple and eloquent, the statement embodies the firm’s passion for design and its impact on clients, communities and the world.
Founded in 1968, the full-service Cuningham Group provides architecture, interior design and planning services for a diverse mix of client and project types, with significant focus over the last 24 years on gaming and entertainment. Bolstered by a staff of 290 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 company'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.
As leaders in gaming and entertainment design, Cuningham Group is on the cutting edge of imagining “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 challenges—and ultimately, the opportunities—facing the future of games and the facilities that house them.
Backed by a client-centered, collaborative approach called “Every Building Tells A Story,” which emphasizes one-of-a-kind solutions reflecting the vision of clients and the character of each property and site, Cuningham Group challenges clients to embrace brick-and-mortar changes that support the evolving nature of gaming and its customer base while setting new standards for the future of entertainment.
Cuningham Group is consistently ranked among top firms, and the firm’s work has been honored with more than 145 industry and market awards.
Recent projects include the LEED Gold, 19-story hotel for Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee; the newly opened Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel near Murphy, North Carolina; the renovation of Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada; the renovation and expansion at Little River Casino Resort in Manistee, Michigan; and the new Rhythm City Casino in Davenport, Iowa, opening in mid-2023.
