Design that Rewards

SOSH Architects

SOSH Architects was founded in 1979 on the core conviction that quality design continually rewards the community, the client and the design team. The firm steadily has grown from a company of four partners to its current size of approximately 50 design professionals and support staff engaged in the execution of major master planning, architecture and interior design commissions worldwide.

The company philosophy drives a design process that values exploration, visualization and the contributions of multiple voices consistent with their belief that the best design solutions are the result of thoughtful collaboration.

SOSH’s principals—Thomas J. Sykes, Thomas J. O’Connor, William A. Salerno and Nory Hazaveh—continue the commitment of personal involvement in each project. With offices in Atlantic City and New York, SOSH Architects has established a worldwide reputation for master planning, architectural design, interior design and strong project delivery achievement.

For more than three decades, SOSH Architects has had the opportunity to work on an impressive array of hospitality design projects. From master planning to restaurant renovation, from new tower construction to resort expansions, SOSH has handled every aspect of hotel and casino design on multiple properties in the major urban markets of New York, Philadelphia and Atlantic City, as well as in California, Arizona, Nevada, Mississippi, Indiana, Louisiana, Connecticut, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.  

Gaming floors, hotel rooms, restaurants, nightclub and entertainment venues, ballrooms, retail stores, lounges, pool and spa retreats, administrative support space, food service facilities and daycare centers all can be found on the same property, and each use brings with it a unique set of challenges and technical requirements.

Ongoing or recently completed projects include: Resorts World Bimini in the Bahamas; Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park in Ohio; Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania; Haven Nightclub at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City; and Margaritaville and Landshark Bar & Grill Pier at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, which was awarded a 2013 Casino Design Award.
