Align our Values

Nikau’s design process for discovering, detailing and aligning project objectives with business objectives to establish quality design & delivery.


Storytelling enables better shared client experiences, and it allows our design team to think about the project context, local culture and entire range of factors that will play with our designed creation.

Creative Thinking

Design thinking is our Nikau methodology used to solve complex projects, and find desirable solutions for our clients, adding value to the projects and investors. We integrate Design & Art with Science & Technology.

Casino & Gaming

Nikau Design Group in collaboration with Andrew Klebanow Consulting offer international benchmarked experiences with a strong regional understanding of the qualities unique to Asia Pacific, and that ensures the creation of wonderful spaces linking people and place.

Our team primarily conducts gaming market assessments, hotel and casino feasibility studies, as well as business plan, and marketing plan development to the full design development proposal.

We can assist clients with forecasting the gaming revenue potential for each project. Then with the gaming revenue forecast, we can provide facility planning recommendations including the number and types of table games and the number of electronic gaming devices necessary to optimise demand, along with the location of associated food & beverage outlets, and general amenities.

As a specialist design team Nikau Design Group has created Eight Aspirational Elements that we consider subtle but critical factors in the design of a successful casino:

01   Benchmarking & Positioning
02   Tailored Experience
03   Arrival
04   Technology
05   Digital Marketing
06   Mass Gaming
07   Security
08   Food & Beverage

Understanding each casino customer type is where the design process begins.
