Napoleons Casino & Restaurant Refurbishment, Manchester
Casino Refurbishment Photography
Having the opportunity to get the studio lighting out and be more creative on a shoot is always a bonus. Napoleons Casino & Restaurant was the perfect space to be able to do that. This casino refurbishment photography was instructed by Chapman Taylor, global architects & masterplanners, the interior design delivers a modern twist on the classic casino environment, with luxury detailing throughout.
Chapman Taylor’s website states “The new casino offers a range of gaming tables, as well as hosting Mahjong and Poker. The latest slot machines and Electronic Roulette are available in a heated and covered outdoor smoking terrace.”.
The casino, the fifth opened under the brand, also offers a beautifully defined and finished private dining room and restaurant with great views over all the action in the gaming area. The venue’s cocktail bar is one of the casino’s main focal points.
An elegant timber-panelled staircase with a brass handrail leads down to the lower basement main gaming floor. Halfway down the staircase is a mezzanine with views over the gaming area.
Within the bar area is a bespoke semi-circular bar with a timber fin feature suspended above and a mixture of freestanding and circular bench seating. A restaurant area and VIP dining space is located to one side of the bar, with a full-catering kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances to the rear of the space. The project also includes the creation of full staff facilities, including a lounge, kitchen, toilets and changing areas as well as plant and storage areas.
Most of the photographs were created by taking multiple images using supplementary lighting, blended together in the editing process to create natural, seamless, well-lit final photographs.
