Mystic Lake Hero Min

Mystic Lake Casino
Prior Lake, MN

Mystic Lake Casino involves a dynamic Master Plan designed for the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux in Prior Lake, Minnesota. Project challenges involved several inaccessible and unrelated spaces as a result of previous casino additions. The BWA team was asked by MLC to unify the facility with an updated, cohesive and open design. The design solution consolidated previous additions, opening up view corridors and adding a light feature ‘river’ running overhead through the casino, thus creating a spacious and coherent design.
