Holland Casino Utrecht: casino interior under the spell of Translucent Stone

The collaboration

In 2021, Holland Casino Utrecht relocated from the city centre to a new site on Winthontlaan, a stone’s throw from a main junction along the A12. The building was designed by OZ Architects and the interior by Gensler Las Vegas. The Dutch spatial design agency Claessens Erdmann worked as co-architects and guaranteed compliance with the Dutch/European standards and norms. In collaboration with Claessens Erdmann, RTR Interiors was commissioned to develop and translate the design.


The interior of the new Holland Casino premises in Utrecht was intended to reinforce and emphasize the casino’s brand. In addition to the architect’s wishes for the interior, such as the look and feel, compliance with regulations such as the Dutch Building Decree and fire safety was crucial. The end result comes thanks to the unique collaboration between international and local architects and interior designers.

Materials: Natural appearance and lighting effect

The Translucent Stone collection from Versato is elegant and attractive. It serves as a plastic version of alabaster, marble or onyx. The architects chose the Onyx Stone and Alabaster sheets. Onyx Stone has a yellowish-brown look, while Alabaster has a classic translucent white appearance. The advantage of the Translucent Stone collection is that the sheets have a beautiful diffused translucency with a natural look that works perfectly with backlighting. No wonder, then, that the designers at Holland Casino decided to use it as illuminated wall cladding.

To comply with regulations, Pyrasied arranged for an extensive fire test to be conducted on the sheets from the collection. This meant Pyrasied could meet the client’s requirements. The sheets were given fire certification (BS1D0 according to NEN-EN 13501), which was suitable for the design.

Coordination between RTR Interiors and Pyrasied

Architects Gensler Las Vegas specified the use of Versato Translucent Stone in Onyx Stone and Alabaster. In their quest for materials and designs, RTR Interiors approached Pyrasied. Pyrasied and RTR Interiors are no strangers to each other, so this was a logical step.

Pyrasied advised RTR Interiors and helped them overcome the challenges they encountered in producing and processing the backlit walls. For example, we advised on the installation of the Versato Translucent Stone in the custom frames. We also shared our ideas about how best to bend the materials.
