Established in 1962 with minimal design updates, MAPA realized an intense task was upon them to refresh Horseshoe's 101 keys (rooms) as well as Horseshoe's Conference Center in 2012 with phase 2 taking place in 2013. The rooms, as out-dated as they were, did provide a large template of space which allowed MAPA to accentuate this rare offering and custom design furniture, fixtures and lighting that scaled and complimented the room proportionately. New electric-heat, floor-to-ceiling stone facade fireplaces along with new large-scale windows for uninterrupted views, eloquently captured the essence that MAPA wanted to concentrate on, the sense of welcome, warmth and wonder.
Upon redesigning the Conference area, office's were moved and walls taken down to open the area around the floating staircase that takes you to the common/sitting area and rock garden. The Conference Rooms and washrooms were updated with new fabrics, fixtures, lighting, ceiling layouts along with custom millwork.
