  • The Guest House at Graceland

    Taking the King of Rock ‘n’Roll™ Elvis Presley’s™ iconic Graceland® mansion in Memphis to a “higher level,” the new resort-style The Guest House at Graceland will include 450 rooms, two restaurants and sports lounge, a 500-seat theater for live performances and meeting rooms. The project, scheduled for a Fall 2016 opening, has been on Graceland’s “wish list” since the mansion and grounds opened for tours in the early 1980s. The hotel site is set back from Elvis Presley Boulevard, and beautifully integrated into the surrounding tree-filled landscape adjacent to the Graceland® mansion.

  • Ho-Chunk Gaming

    HBG is providing planning and design services for four casino and hotel expansion and renovation projects at four separate properties all owned and operated by our Tribal gaming client. Each project is being designed to complement and enhance the existing gaming brand. Special attention is being given to integration of Tribal history and culture, such as the use of Native American ribbonwork patterns as building accents, with cues taken from nature and translated into region-inspired design elements, such as glass walls that mimic falling water and sunset color and pattern play on building façades. The architectural and interior design will visually unite all four properties, resulting in projects that complement each other while remaining aesthetically unique to their specific region and context.
