2020 Suites Winner


The 72 Club Living Room Boxes at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, powered by FanVision, take luxury seating to a higher level in the NFL. Each of the 32 four-seat living room boxes is situated around the 35-yard lines in the lower bowl at field level.


It’s relatively easy to concept something that looks cool on paper. Turning that same concept into reality — nuts and bolts and engineered reality — takes a herculean team effort like what has happened in the Midway neighborhood of Saint Paul at the new Allianz Field, home of Minnesota United. From its master plan and landscape design to its interiors, furniture, graphics, and brand activation, the result is a larger experience that feels seamlessly woven together.


The Field Club at Allianz Field brings Minnesota United fans up close and personal to players as they walk through the space on their way to the field and back to the locker room. Club members also use the same entrance as the team to access their seats along the midfield line in the lower bowl. The club’s signature design feature is a flowing ceiling, inspired from the stadium’s iconic exterior skin. Large communal tables and long sectional furniture reinforce the sense of comfort and shared space.


The Stadium Club at Allianz Field features floor-to-ceiling glass walls that provide elevated views of the pitch. Cool blue neutrals and hints of yellow and black steel accents, an exposed ceiling, and raw polished concrete floors create a casual, loft-like space, while a constellation of decorative lights draws attention to two large bars and a central dining area. The stadium broadcast booth and camera decks are uniquely located in the club, immersing fans in the gameday experience.


All suites reside at the top of a stack of premium levels on Allianz Field's west side. A suite guest’s journey starts from the ground up with a warm and welcoming premium entrance that transitions into a beautiful staircase. Each variety of suite is open and utilizes communal tables to emphasize this quality. In addition, they share natural materials like walnut and leather, finding inspiration in Minnesota’s abundant forests and striking an aesthetic balance with the team colors of blue and grey.


Within the short 80-day renovation, the Lexus Lounge received a complete overhaul. The new space features a widened entryway, higher ceilings, renovated restrooms, as well as upgraded and relocated food and beverage locations. Designers were able to add almost 1,000 square feet to the previous layout to further enhance the already world-class service within the space. The renovations were designed by the former Tampa office of Gould Evans, with local MEP design performed by Volt Air Mechanical. Construction management of the entire project was completed by the Tampa office of Manhattan Construction Company.


The Los Angeles Angels installed more than 23,000 square feet of LED video displays at Angel Stadium, including the third largest display in baseball, featuring 9,500 square feet of digital space. They also implemented a unique aspect, corner wraps, to the main display in right field. These corner wraps form the appearance of a 3D rectangular box. Their benefits go beyond the interesting aspect ratio and the visual impression, also providing appealing graphics to the fans sitting in the outfield.


Dimensional Innovations partnered with CommunityAmerica Credit Union, the newest partner of Arrowhead Stadium, to help activate their brand inside one of the main entrances of the stadium. The CommunityAmerica Credit Union partnership includes exclusive fan experiences for Kansas City Chiefs fans as they enter Gate F, now known as the CommunityAmerica gate.


In the early planning stages of the AT&T Center, it was decided that the venue could be a wonderful showcase for the tremendous talent of the many artists from San Antonio and across Texas. A collection of more than 200 pieces, encompassing the work of over 50 artists curated from local galleries and art institutions, word of mouth, and direct solicitations has recently been refurbished and reinstalled in the newly renovated AT&T Center. The popular “Atomic Spur”, located on the East Porch on the H-E-B Fan Zone Level, was created from brushed aluminum, neon, LED, and 13,000 rhinestones. 


The Miller Lite Corral, a staple at Texas Stadium for nearly 20 years, re-opened again in 2014 at AT&T Stadium, the new home of the Dallas Cowboys. It serves as an iconic hospitality area for pre- and post-game celebrations!

The structure features a 1,350 square foot mezzanine area that can be rented for VIP parties, corporate functions or private events.


Home to LAFC, Banc of California Stadium’s contemporary design features an ETFE canopy that flies above the bowl like angel wings in the “City of Angels.” Embracing Tinseltown, the stadium cinematically stages moments to engage fans and build memories. Diverse club offerings attract every level of fan, embodying the “grit and glamour” of Los Angeles. As guests make their way up the building, materials, furniture, and light fixtures gradually mirror the gradient of the California sunset.


The Carolina Panthers offer a wide variety of hospitality options outside the venue walls. Beautifully situated on the lawn of Bank of America Stadium, South Lawn Village, Legends Row, and Champions Village all provide a rare sports experience for companies and organizations, and each hospitality location can be tailored to accommodate groups of 20 or more. All hospitality tent packages include gourmet southern food and beverage options, classic décor, live bands, and appearances by Panthers entertainment groups – all within steps of the stadium entrances.


Carolina Panthers Luxury Suites provide great views of the field, while offering features and amenities, including reserved premium parking, private entry and exclusive access to the LUXE Lobby on gameday, in-suite catering options with personal suite attendants to service all food and beverage needs, and access to the newly renovated Silver Club Level. Not only do guests have the ultimate NFL gameday experience in a unique atmosphere, but the Panthers are committed to taking LUXE memberships beyond the football season and outside the walls of Bank of America Stadium.  


Taking its name from the 32 franchises of the National Football League, The 32 Club provides an all-inclusive gameday experience for its 32 members. Located along the north sideline, The 32 Club features three rows of seating behind fully retractable glass windows for a panoramic view of the field. Guests enjoy many features and amenities, including exclusive member gifts and special event opportunities, reserved premium parking, private LUXE Lobby stadium entry, all-inclusive in-suite catering with a personal suite attendant, and access to the Silver Club Level.

With only 28 seats in each Silver Club Terrace, the exclusive game day experience combines the luxury of a private area and convenience of covered viewing on the 300 Club level. Each Silver Club Terrace features three rows of cushioned seats behind fully retractable glass windows, five televisions and stunning décor.


The Lightbound Courtside Club is a 400-member oasis which transforms the way fans experience a game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Designed by Populous and located adjacent to the home team locker room, this exclusive club provides an unparalleled experience of relaxation, excitement, and culinary fare with unprecedented access to players and other VIPs. Just steps from the court, the club caters to courtside ticket holders before, during, and after each Pacers home game. The club now allows for more fans to be served in a quicker fashion alongside elevated culinary offerings.


The Sells Group Loft at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, located directly behind end court at the club level, is comprised of existing suites and bowl seating, which was originally proving to be hard to sell on game night, but was still activated for concerts. Designed by Populous, a combination of 12 theatre boxes and 14 loge boxes, each containing four seats for a total combined capacity of 104 seats, opened in November 2016 to reinvent this location for a new exclusive, intimate experience. Sells Group Loft also offers a central bar, featuring mixologists crafting unique cocktails.

Bartesian crafts premium cocktails at the push of a button. Simply insert a capsule, select the strength, and enjoy a perfectly crafted cocktail in seconds. Four reservoirs contain different spirits (vodka, gin, rum, tequila, or whiskey). When a capsule is inserted, the system draws the spirit from the appropriate reservoir. The strength of each drink is adjustable from mocktail to double, so there's a cocktail for every palate. Now you don’t have to be an expert mixologist to serve an excellent cocktail.


The classic art deco meets modern look of the BOK Center is a perfect metaphor for the evolution and growth of Downtown Tulsa, where vintage boomtown history meets rock-and-roll futurism and fun. New premium spaces built in the last few years include the Presidential Suite and the Sky Lounge. The Presidential Suite is the only of its kind in the building. The 3rd Level Sky Lounge was created to give a premium common space for Sky Loft seat holders to enjoy a cocktail created by mixologists. But it has also become an elite premium upgrade option for the general public.


Due to increased spectator demand and opportunity, the University of Maryland enlarged Tyser Tower at Byrd Stadium, adding 66,000 square feet to the original 33,000-square-foot tower. The scope of work called for 64 luxury suites, 500 mezzanine-level seats, a new presidential suite with seating for 200, new work areas for television, radio, and print media, new work areas for coaches and gameday operations staff, a new team store, enhanced seating for patrons with disabilities, and installation of a new state-of-the-art video board above the west end zone. 


The newest private infield suite, named Lynx Mountain after one of Calgary Stampede's legendary bucking horses, sits just above the rodeo arena and accommodates up to 48 guests with up-close action in style. Rustic touches, including wainscoting and table tops made with wood reclaimed from a Welsh chapel, combine with modern touches like custom track lighting featuring the Calgary Stampede logo and brand. Design work is by Baboushkin Design Group of Calgary.


In order to capitalize on the high volume of wine sales in the ranahans private club, the Calgary Stampede took a formerly underutilized space and phone room, and created a new wine bar and walk-in cooler as one of the focal points of the room. The curved bar front mimics the existing wagon wheel detail of the ceiling, which gave cellar masters a place to pour wines, offer tastings, and engage with guests as they pass by. Design work is by Baboushkin Design Group of Calgary.


After decades off campus, Populous has brought football back to the Colorado State University campus with its 41,000 capacity multi-purpose stadium. The design of the stadium is authentic to the state and region, with a sweeping plaza on the north side providing space for elevating existing traditions and enjoying the views. The Populous design ensures functionality for both game day and non-game day usage.  An 80,000 SF Alumni and Academic Center is integrated into the design to bring students and faculty into the building year-round.


The new Colorado State Stadium is home to the New Belgium Porch, a unique outdoor terrace that offers Rams’ fans a one-of-a-kind tailgating experience. New Belgium, a Fort Collins-based brewery, sponsors the space and gives fans access to their local craft beers on game-day and non-game day alike. The open north end zone consists of two large grand staircases on either side of the New Belgium Porch, allowing fans to arrive at a single concourse with a continuous connection to the game and back to campus.


Atlanta United FC needed a home base that could fulfill a wide variety of needs—from those of its players and employees behind the team, to fans and community members. Just before the team started their 2017 season, they were sprawled out, commuting more than an hour to use facilities that were not their own. The objective of the project was to create a united wellness and fitness center for the team to call home. In addition, the client desired a facility that could attract future talent domestically and abroad.


Phase one of this multi-phase project at Churchill Downs included expanding the existing Jockey Club Suite tower. The 77,250-square-foot project added 32 new suites, which are built above an existing grandstand. Each of the three levels features trackside suites adjacent to a large bar and dining experience. Overall, the project added a new entry stair tower, 1,910 new seats, three new viewing terraces, three large bars, three large buffets, and 71 new wager machines.


A new 4,000-square-foot Strength and Conditioning Center was added to the north side of the existing Cintas Center on the main campus of Xavier University. The new facility supports and enhances the training experience for university student-athletes with space for cardio and weight training activities, as well as a nutrition station. It also includes new office and storage spaces. Its aesthetics complement the existing architectural language and seamlessly integrate the Musketeer Athletics brand.

This year is the 35th anniversary of the Detroit Tigers’ 1984 World Series team. To celebrate, the Tigers contacted a local artist who painted an original image of Tiger Stadium that includes a small banner advertisement above the dugout. The artist replaced the advertiser name with the name of each suite holder to be presented to them as a gift this season. A small plaque at the bottom of each frame signifies that the print is 1 of 1, as each painting is custom to that company or individual.


In the mountains of Colorado, the Rockies were looking for a unique display shape to connect with their brand and give their fans an added sense of belonging while at Coors Field. They turned to Daktronics to provide a new 8,369-square-foot LED video display in the outfield with a logo-inspired mountain range shape along the top. Going further than unique shape, the display is also the fourth largest in the major leagues, 258% larger than their previous display.


Daily’s Place is the first-ever amphitheater designed and built to connect with a professional sports facility. The new venue is the second phase of a $90 million investment by the Jacksonville Jaguars and the city of Jacksonville. The 5,500-seat amphitheater and adjoining flex field share one expansive roof structure, which features an undulating form inspired by the nearby St. Johns River. The stacked-seating design offers superior sightlines and brings ticket holders closer to the action.


Axalta Coating Systems, a founding partner for Daytona International Speedway, worked with Dimensional Innovations to bring their brand to life in the center injector entrance, named “The Color of Speed.” This injector is one of five entrances that lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to different concourse levels. The 32,000-square-foot space, as well as the four concourse levels, attract fans through strong visuals and photo opportunities. The design accomplished Axalta’s goals for the space, and conveys their brand message in a unique way. 


For the first time in history, the Finali Mondiali, or the Ferrari World Finals, took place in North America. The Finali Mondiali brought together all competitors from the European, North American, and Asia-Pacific series of the Ferrari Challenge to battle for the World Championship on Daytona International Speedway’s 3.56-mile road course. For the event, Daytona hosted an Italian Street Food Party for 3,000 guests. Foodservice partner Americrown created items from Neapolitan Pizza, Artisan Salami, and Italian Cheeses, to Hand-Carved Porchetta and Fresh-Made Gelato.


The improvements at Doak Campbell Stadium had to be completed between football seasons, resulting in only about nine months of construction time. The addition of approximately 6,000 new club seats, along with approximately 36,600 square feet of air-conditioned club space, mandated that the existing vertical circulation systems be improved with the addition of two new circulation towers. The existing sixth floor terrace space was also resurfaced and the area expanded.


The Avenell Club at Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal FC, reflects a shifting football marketplace. The new premium experience consolidates 12 box suites into a single lounge, offering approximately 200 people a laid-back premium matchday menu and panoramic views of the pitch. It feels like a luxury airline clubhouse but supercharged for sports and bowl-based events and combined with a signature North London attitude, premium materials, and a refined approach to service.


Dial Square at Emirates Stadium pays homage to the munitions workers at a royal military armaments factory established in the 18th century. Dial Square gets its name from the sundial featured above the courtyard the workers played on after forming the football team now known as Arsenal FC. The club space mimics the outdoor courtyard, while providing guests with a social space and enhanced F&B options, such as the Premier League’s first open-flame pizza oven and fresh rotisserie chicken.


The Theatre Boxes at Scottrade Center is a members-only club which offers an upscale, private entrance to connect fans to the action with a first-class experience unique to Scottrade Center and St. Louis.

The all-inclusive, locally inspired menu, in addition to the signature bar serving cocktails and a variety of top-shelf spirits is designed to satisfy members and their guests.


Enterprise Center, formerly known as Scottrade Center, has largely remained untouched since its opening 24 years ago. Generator Studio was engaged by the St. Louis Blues to explore options to help drive revenue and keep the arena competitive in the constantly evolving landscape of sports architecture. The most visible improvement to the facility this off-season was the addition of a new all-inclusive premium experience called the Theater Boxes.


Generator Studio teamed up with the St. Louis Blues to introduce several new products for the 2018-2019 season, including the Bommarito Automotive Group Sales Lounge. Located on the club level, the Lounge is sandwiched between the recently renovated Bud Light Sports Pub and the action on the ice, creating one seamless, sports bar environment. The design also includes three new in-bowl seating types: seated-table loge boxes, reserved couches, and bar-height drink rail seats.


Generator Studio also teamed up with the St. Louis Blues to introduce the Scott Credit Union Rinkside Club and Pub ’67 for the 2018-2019 season. With no direct view of the ice, the Rinkside Club relies on its one-of-a-kind atmosphere, including a 100-linear-foot bar and food served in an elevated bistro environment. Pub ’67 is the “club within the club,” accessed via a private entry within the Rinkside Club. A reservation-only tasting room is featured for the ultimate F&B experience.

The University of Florida retained Davis Architects to renovate its aging 300,000-square-foot Stephen C. O’Connell Center, which serves the basketball, volleyball, swimming, diving, and gymnastics programs, as well as hosts many regional events and concerts. The east side of the facility was expanded to create a new main entry, connecting two existing entries into one grand lobby that feeds into a renovated seating bowl. A perimeter concourse was created with concessions, restrooms, merchandise kiosks, and a new Center Court Club. The event level was renovated with new home and visitor locker rooms and a Courtside Club.


The Boston Red Sox upgraded their suite technology for suite holders who renewed their agreements in 2017. The upgrade included the installation of a new Crestron touch-panel control system for all in-suite audio-visual technology. Also upgraded were all three televisions in the suites, and tabletop-mounted iPads replaced old computers. New Elo 15-inch touch-panel tablets from Bypass were also installed for concessions ordering, as were HDMI wall jacks and audio jacks for customers that would like to do presentations before or during the game. Lastly, the Red Sox customized the Shoretel touchscreen telephones in suites to include corporate logos and signage.


The Aramark team at Fenway Park has truly embraced Front of the House as its preferred supplier and takes advantage of FOH’s capabilities for custom etching and porcelain decalling. By showcasing the World Series logo and famed Red Sox logo on rustic wood Root boards, it elevates the customer’s culinary and dining experience. Aramark and the Red Sox have also utilized custom decalling in the Dell EMC Club, which allows the club/client logo to be showcased as well.


The on-campus home for Men’s and Women’s Basketball at Villanova University is transforming. A great experience begins at a new entry sequence at the southwest corner of the building. Once inside, fans are greeted by a new lobby, hall of fame, and 360-degree concourse. Three levels of club spaces are designed, blending the existing and new architecture. Four corner video boards, along with a center-hung LED and fascia ribbon boards are combined with a new state-of-the-art sound system, and Wi-Fi will also be upgraded throughout the building. The Pavilion, when complete, will be known as the Finneran Pavilion, in honor of Villanova alumnus William B. Finneran.

The Fiserv Forum (formerly Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center), which will open in the fall of 2018, is the first new sports and entertainment arena in Wisconsin since 2002.

The $524 million, 730,000-square-foot arena located in downtown Milwaukee will be a preeminent sports and entertainment arena that will host up to 200 events a year, including the Bucks, Marquette men’s basketball, major concerts, family shows, major college basketball, hockey, boxing, MMA and much more.


The Milwaukee Bucks opened Fiserv Forum in 2018 with approximately 12,000 square feet of LED video displays from Daktronics, including in the Beer Garden outside of the venue, where a six-millimeter display measures 17.5 feet high by 36.5 feet wide to show live action both of the game inside and of other games affecting the Bucks. It’s a social interaction space with a massive digital screen as the main focal point to engage fans in the surrounding entertainment district.


The Mezzanine Club, the crown jewel of Fiserv Forum hospitality, serves up a lush hideaway for Bucks fans with sideline seating. The club’s concept of a modern forest retreat comes alive with a material palette including reclaimed hardwood walls and Cream City brick, as well as blackened steel architectural detailing. Two bars bookend the club, each clad in bronze panels and featuring a blackened steel canopy which wraps down the back wall covered in a bronze, gold, and silver antique mirror.


The Detroit Lions are improving the gameday experience at Ford Field with 21 new LED video displays to be designed, manufactured, and installed by Daktronics. The 21-display system will feature more than 26,000 square feet of displays with more than 28.1 million LEDs ready to make fans roar when the 2017 season kicks off. The team has also partnered with Meyer Sound, who will install the full LEO Family Linear Sound Reinforcement System. It will feature eight array clusters with 182 separate loudspeakers, including 42 LEO-M loudspeakers and 60 LYON loudspeakers.


The New Ford Field Renovation Project is a comprehensive re-envisioning of the fan experience throughout the stadium. The Detroit Lions identified the need to upgrade specific areas at Ford Field to align with the changing local marketplace and demographics. A total of 210,000 square feet of space, ranging from large social clubs to suites to loges, will be renovated in place or completely reconfigured. Premium upgrades include the South Club with loge boxes, the Terrace Club with theatre-box-style suites, the Gridiron Club where food takes center stage, the Lounge club, and Corner bar.


Ford Field underwent major renovations in 2017 totaling more than $100 million. Part of that project included improving the fan experience with new LED video displays. The most unique part involved two super columns wrapped in LED technology providing a full 360-degree view of digital content for branding and entertainment purposes. The columns are located in two corners of the stadium on the same side of the field. They feature 6-millimeter line spacing to appeal to close viewing distances and measure 36.5 feet high by 62.5 feet in circumference.


Ford Field hosts the National Football League’s Detroit Lions as well as many other large-scale concerts and special events.  Construction was completed in 2002, with seating for 65,000 football fans plus additional seating on the field surface for other events.  By late 2015, stadium management had determined that a complete refurbishment of stadium amenities was in order, including essentially all AV systems. With a budget of over $100 million and scheduled for completion in August of 2017, the project also included updates to the suites and premium club areas.


The $100M Ford Field Renovation Project is a comprehensive re-envisioning of the fan experience throughout the stadium. As the architects of the original stadium in 2002, The Detroit Lions partnered with ROSSETTI to upgrade their hospitality spaces in order to align with the changing local marketplace and demographics, as well as better utilize space within the stadium. A total of 210,000 SF of space was renovated in place or completely reconfigured in a compressed seven-month time frame to be completed by August, 2017 for the start of the pre-game football season.


The Detroit Lions enjoy a successful “Reserve Early and Save” email campaign for suite rental sales, where the team offers prospective buyers the opportunity to lock in the best per-event pricing for the year. Through personalized messages, the Lions target current and past customers, as well as other known interested buyers, resulting in over $165,000 in additional revenue. What isn’t measurable in the data is the power of reconditioning the marketplace to purchase as early as possible.


The recent $100 million Ford Field renovation project included installation of new LED video displays. Most notably, two super columns were wrapped in LED technology, providing a full 360-degree view of digital content for branding and entertainment purposes. These video displays are more than just brightness and pixel density. They also take into account the architecture of the space and turn a necessary support structure into a functional channel for delivering messages to fans.


The Fox Theatre Atlanta’s new Marquee Club presented by Lexus is slated to open in the fall of 2017. It will total 10,000 square feet of event space, encapsulating indoor, outdoor, and climate-controlled environments. A historic venue and protected landmark, Lord Aeck Sargent, a preeminent historical preservation design firm, was selected to lead the architectural planning. Borrowing from the Fox’s iconic Moorish and Persian design, the Marquee Club will be a visual spectacle with handcrafted, richly-toned furniture. Enhanced food and beverage service will be available at five stationary bars.


For “Overall Building Architecture” consideration, we are pleased to submit Atlanta’s Fox Theatre and its recently opened Marquee Club Presented by Lexus, which is a perfect complement to the Fox’s overall design and architecture. Expanding upon its footprint, the Fox Theatre has revitalized 10,000 square feet of vacant retail space in the northwest corner of the building to house the aforementioned Marquee Club.


Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center, which opened in July of 2017, serves as the new downtown training and practice home for the Milwaukee Bucks.

OU Athletics is committed to providing student-athletes, coaches, and fans with the best facilities across the country. The renovations to the Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium will not only enhance the ability to recruit and train the nation’s best and brightest student-athletes, but also build upon a game environment that is second to none. Significant emphasis has been placed on improving and creating new fan amenities and seating options. Architectural design is by Populous.


From the arena down to the food, every detail was taken into consideration at Golden 1 Center. For Legends Hospitality General Manager Michael Tuohy, the idea was to not only create new menus that brought different cultures, tastes, and fresh options together, but also source 90% of the food featured within 150 miles of the arena. Golden 1 Center has proved that fast food can be delicious and healthy. And with 27 gluten-free options, five vegan options, and 12 vegetarian options, Golden 1 Center aims to offer many options for its visitors to choose from.


The main entrance at Golden 1 Center has five aircraft hangar doors that fold upwards to welcome in the Delta breeze, a natural cooling phenomenon in Sacramento, and reduce the energy costs of the arena. These doors, which are 40-feet-tall and 27-feet-wide, serve as focal points of the arena, and when closed, shield the arena from Sacramento’s 100-degree summer days, while offering a glimpse of the city’s up-and-coming skyline. Incorporating the hangar doors into the architecture not only gives it a touch of Sacramento, but also creates the first “outdoor-indoor arena” in the NBA.


Since moving into Golden 1 Center, the Sacramento Kings have worked hard to make the new arena feel like home both inside and out. With a strong commitment to display art publicly, Golden 1 Center has become home to the largest contribution of public art in Sacramento history. The most renowned piece of the collection is the world’s first publicly-owned, permanently-displayed sculpture by Jeff Koons, called Coloring Book #4. To welcome the people of Sacramento to the new arena, the Sacramento Kings have paired with Downtown Commons to host “Long Lunch Fridays” on the Golden 1 Center Plaza, featuring food trucks, live music, and the occasional craft fair.


Golden 1 Center offers a courtside club, twin club lounges, and exclusive clubs for suite and loft guests. These clubs provide guests with different experiences, tailored to their individual needs. They are not only comfortable sanctuaries, but also modern spaces that help to keep the “uniquely Sacramento” theme through the use of neutral colors and wood and stone to create an indoor/outdoor feel. The Lexus Lounge courtside club is a chic, sophisticated Napa wine-themed room. The club lounges – Assembly and Rush – each have a 40-foot bar and communal tables.


Two suite options are offered in Golden 1 Center – traditional suites and the unique living-room-style lofts. Both options have access to the arena’s farm-to-fork cuisine, premium clubs, and lounges. Each suite features cabinets and closets for storage, refrigerators, and televisions controlled through the Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center app. Guests can also use the app to control the lighting in the suites, summon a concierge, or access advanced stats. With networking and entertainment in mind, the lofts have a sustainable environment that utilizes materials harvested throughout the Sacramento region. All suites and lofts offer a premium experience in the Suite Level Club.


As a LEED-Platinum-rated building and hailed as the “Most Technologically Advanced Arena in the World,” Golden 1 Center has created buzz around its many aspects. Described as an “extroverted” building, Golden 1 Center eliminates the line between indoors and outdoors, connecting to the surrounding city via the hangar doors and façade that evokes the granite of the Sierra Nevada mountains and city’s nickname of the “City of a Million Trees”. Solar panels generate energy for the technology within the arena walls, and reduce its overall carbon footprint.


Inspired by Sacramento Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé’s storied career as a tech entrepreneur and innovator, Golden 1 Center was destined to redefine the fan experience through next-generation technology. By embedding more code than concrete into Golden 1 Center, the Sacramento Kings seek to remove traditional arena barriers, creating a seamless and frictionless guest experience. Golden 1 Center is home to two 100 gigabits per second broadband lines located in a 6,000-square-foot data center, connected by over 1,000 miles of Kings purple Ethernet cable.


Golden 1 Center has retail stores distributed among its many levels. Throughout the arena, fans can find the main two-story team store, an all-hat store, several smaller-sized team stores, and many portable apparel stands to show off their team spirit. The concourses are not only wide and spacious, but they are also dynamic, and can be changed to reflect the needs of the event crowd. The Golden 1 Center crew can adapt retail spaces to reduce traffic in concourses, allowing fans to get merchandise in the lease amount of time possible.


Sacramento Kings suite owners received an unconventional gift to celebrate the 2018-2019 season – an Amazon Alexa and smart speaker branded with their company logos rather than the Kings logo, in an effort to resonate more with top clients. The Alexas were a huge hit. Clients communicated how they appreciated a gift with their branding and use it often. The Kings also created a high-end custom box to house the gift for a wow moment when opening it.


The Sacramento Kings have released a new section of premium seating at Golden 1 Center called the Balcony Boxes. Guests can entertain clients or enjoy a premium experience with friends in a Balcony Box with capacity for four to 16 guests. The Balcony Boxes also feature daily food options from Golden 1 Center’s famed “Farm to Fork” culinary menu. Food is served dim-sum style and includes appetizers, main courses, and dessert options for all dietary preferences.

The Atlanta Braves moved into their new home, SunTrust Park, at the start of the 2017 baseball season. The $672 million state-of-the-art stadium holds over 41,000 fans. It’s the first of its kind in the MLB to be surrounded by a $400 million mixed-use development, called The Battery Atlanta, that invites and supports the local community around the ballpark with restaurants, retail, apartment housing and even a live music theater.


As the most complete mixed-used development ever to be built around a sports venue and Major League baseball team, The Battery Atlanta serves as the main plaza that leads fans into the new SunTrust Park Stadium, home of the Atlanta Braves. The hotspot is surrounded by several major restaurant and bar locations, an Omni Hotel, the Comcast regional headquarters building, and is just across the street from the Coca Cola Roxy, a brand new music venue that accommodates nearly 4,000 guests. This means the plaza could see more than 50,000 people parade through on a game day.


SunTrust Park is home to 38 private suites that embody a best-in-class MLB fan experience for Atlanta Braves’ fans. The Populous team reimagined a typical suite layout by moving hospitality toward the field and creating a luxe lounge grouping at the back for social interaction. Butterfly matched, antique marble slabs compose the centralized island, creating order and grounding each space. Thoughtfully placed indirect lighting solutions were also integrated throughout to accentuate the layering of texture and color.


Inside T-Mobile Arena, the dramatic VIP entry emulates sedimentary layering with custom undulating wall panels. Event level suites and clubs alike feature custom-designed, plated bronze tectonic-style tables and beautiful windswept Las Vegas Rock. Two clubs on the main concourse reflect the day and night desert with back-lit soft magenta and blue ceilings respectively. The suite level finishes are inspired by the desert sunset. Innovative banquette seating in lieu of fixed arena seating allows patrons to spread out comfortably. Loge boxes and terrace tables offer first-class perks and exclusive privileges. And two tower clubs jut out of the upper deck, connected by the plush Hyde Lounge.


T-Mobile Arena, in partnership with Levy Restaurants, offers first-class catering and a wide variety of food and beverage options at each level. Restaurants include Shake Shack, Chronic Tacos, Pizza Forte, and Pink’s Hot Dogs, all topped off by Chef’s Table located on the suite level. The menu varies by event and includes exquisite options, such as freshly baked artesian pretzels, gourmet nachos, locally sourced mixed greens, pasta stations, prime rib, charcuterie, and handcrafted desserts. At T-Mobile Arena, premium seating membership provides access to all lounges.


T-Mobile Arena is steps away from the Las Vegas Strip. The surrounding neighborhood includes Toshiba Plaza and The Park, which is an immersive, outdoor destination for dining and entertainment. Toshiba Plaza is a unique outdoor space that includes three stages and can accommodate 5,000-10,000 people. The Park is home to Bliss Dance, a breathtaking, 40-foot-tall sculpture of a dancing woman, celebrating the strength of a woman who is both safe and present. Another unique feature of The Park includes heat-absorbing tulip-shaped structures. A blend of entertainment makes these spaces the pulse that combines T-Mobile Arena’s surroundings into one community.


The Target Center is undergoing a major renovation that will dramatically enhance the fan experience. Visitors at all price levels will benefit from new and upgraded amenities, including premium seating opportunities, food and beverage options, and additional gathering spaces throughout the arena. Chairman’s Suites include a private unit with a balcony and access to the Chairman’s Club, which provides an elite dining experience with a complimentary, communal bar that overlooks center court. Theater Boxes provide opportunity for those looking to entertain smaller groups with the amenities of an all-inclusive club.


Target Center Officially Reopens Following Completion of Renovation; Timberwolves Home Opener on October 20 will be first public event


Of the sponsorship branding activations inside Target Center, the standout is the Lexus club. The Lexus logomark “L” has been rendered using layers of solid clear acrylic spheres suspended on aircraft cable, which has been mounted to the ceiling and lit from above and behind. The reflective hanging balls look rich and hint at—in the most restrained way—the visual language of the basketball and net. The cables are crimped on at top and bottom of the spheres so they do not penetrate the spheres.


The Lexus Courtside Club is a brand new space coming out of the Target Center renovation and is the most luxurious club space in the arena. The design is inspired by the modern, industrial decor that the Warehouse District restaurants are known for. The space was created in what was previously the box office, and was one of the primary spaces that was completely reimagined during the renovation.


The Minnesota Twins introduced three new Daktronics narrow pixel pitch displays in their Bat & Barrel club space. The displays feature 2.5-millimeter line spacing to make a premium impression on Twins fans in this entertainment space at Target Field. Mounted directly next to each other, the displays follow the architecture behind the bar area to form a semi-square shape that features one obtuse and one acute angle where the displays meet. The unique configuration draws fans’ attention.


The Minnesota Twins provided premium clients with The Whiskey Box, a dark and handsome solid oak chest with rustic nails and secure storage for a suite holder’s favorite 750mL whiskey bottle, two 8oz heavy-bottomed lowball glasses, two soapstone coasters, and two soapstone whiskey stones to chill drinks without watering them down. At once modern and vintage, this whiskey set will be the artifact grandkids remember standing stately and unassuming.

The venue wanted to create a desirable space that could give members a truly unique and exclusive experience to compliment the caliber of entertainment available at the arena. Now guests will not only get the best seats in the house, but also the full backstage experience. The lounge was designed by Brighton-based firm Platform Group.


The Minnesota Vikings accelerated the build-out of an existing shell space in U.S. Bank Stadium to provide a missing premium seating product for large group sales. The integration of technology as part of the architecture allowed the team to incorporate subtle sponsorships and tailored branding opportunities. The design solution was inspired by Minnesota, specifically local materials and native culture, manifested as four 60-person cabins and a mini-club named The Lodge. The space culminates in a signature 130-linear-foot membership bar, dubbed the Truss Bar due to its proximity to the super truss that inspired the stadium’s form.


The Minnesota Vikings created the Vikings Voyage in the northwest corner of U.S. Bank Stadium, providing fans with an interactive experience that includes virtual reality, personalized RFID check-in, and an OLED equipment display. Designed and built by Dimensional Innovations, the Voyage is free for all fans and open during all Vikings events. Within the innovative space, fans can participate in combine-themed events and track scores against others at the various stations by wearing bracelets connected to the RFID system. Along with competitive games, the Voyage includes a full-size ship hull that features a 30-foot projection screen.

The University of Arizona Lowell-Stevens Football Facility is a bold campus addition. It provides spectacular new club space, premium seating, and connects the existing elevated east and west concourses with a broad concourse containing extensive amenities that serve the entire stadium. The building’s design takes advantage of strong light and shadow, utilizing a neutral palette of grays and copper colors to reflect the Sonoran environment. The narrow floor plate employs expansive glazing, making the upper levels transparent, framing campus and mountain views from the elevated levels.


The Nippert Stadium renovation project had two major goals: enhance the fan experience and strengthen the quality of the campus. This project on the University of Cincinnati’s confined urban campus raises the standard for collegiate stadium facilities. The dramatic architecture contributes to the distinctive surroundings by delivering a showcase building for the university and improving the gameday and non-gameday environment. All interior design aspects reinforced the building’s aesthetic, highlighting a large, diagonal truss system that conveys the overall scale of the building.


HNTB, in partnership with Ross-Tarrant Architects, is designing a new 106,000-square-foot high-performance football center, outdoor practice fields, and outdoor training area. The two-level facility will be located adjacent to Kroger Field (formerly Commonwealth Stadium), and connected to the existing indoor practice fieldhouse. In developing a state-of-the-art facility, one of the primary goals was for this facility to be more than a glorified recruiting tool, and include program areas that were designed to optimize the overall sports performance of student-athletes.

At 23,771 seats, Arthur Ashe Stadium, on the campus of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, is the largest tennis stadium in the world. It was originally designed by ROSSETTI in 1997, but was not designed to have a roof. Rain hindered play during the US Open for five consecutive years, causing the USTA to search for a solution. After an intensive R+D effort in collaboration with WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, ROSSETTI's innovative design concept was selected. In addition to the new roof, the upgraded stadium features state-of-the-art broadcast and audio systems, 90 luxury suites, five restaurants, and a two-level players’ lounge.


The new Videotron Centre presents itself as a built work of art and a new community centerpiece in the province of Quebec’s capital city.

The American Airlines 1914 Club, located behind home plate, celebrates the 105-year history of the opening of Wrigley Field.

This club intersects the history of the Cubs organization with its long-standing partnership with American Airlines through branding, photography, and artifacts to provide fans with a seamless guest experience.


The Maker’s Mark Barrel Room at Wrigley Field perfectly captures the allure of old-school Chicago. This speakeasy-inspired destination originated from an old photo in the Cubs’ archives of the infamous Al Capone and Cubs catcher Gabby Hartnett, the latter signing an autograph for Capone’s son. True to the speakeasy theme, framed photos in the back of the club open to reveal views into the opponent’s batting tunnel, offering fans an additional surprise discovery once inside.


With four new premium clubs and a renovated suite level, the food & beverage program at Wrigley Field is ahead of the game.

Some of the cocktails receiving high praise include: The Cigar Manhattan, Tacos & Caviar, S.S. Avalon, and Soju Citrus.


The Catalina Club boasts a panoramic view of Wrigley Field, the Chicago skyline, and Lake Michigan. Inspired by the Cubs early spring training home on Catalina Island, members of this club enjoy a decorative style influenced by the island’s history, as well as the terracotta tiles and hand-painted glazed tiles reminiscent of a Catalina Island residence or hotel. The original Catalina Island logo is displayed prominently in the club with the “CUBS” logo in nautical font.


The Maker’s Mark Barrel Room at Wrigley Field is a speakeasy-inspired destination with artisan menus, mixologist-crafted cocktails, and access to a unique Maker’s Mark bourbon blend created exclusively for the club. To further honor the Maker’s Mark brand, reclaimed Kentucky barn wood and Maker’s Mark barrels are strategically placed in the club, and warm lighting highlights a custom Maker’s Mark bottle chandelier that previously hung in the main lobby at the Louisville distillery.


Wrigley Field’s suites have always been part of the ballpark’s tradition, beauty, and charm. Each private suite has allowed fans to experience a mix of outdoor seating and private indoor seating in a space they could call their own on gameday. And now, fans in suites can add luxury to their ballpark experiences. Expanded and upgraded with premium amenities, Wrigley Field’s suites, designed with Populous, feature brick walls with a modernized touch to meet the grandeur of the Friendly Confines.


Ice Rinks are fast becoming major economic drivers and excellent use of exterior space on and off season.   Economic impact is felt not only by the facility, but by the surrounding business district.    The temporary structure on this site was used to create additional function space by creating a warming area,  skate rental tent, and additional event space for The Park at Wrigley.  

  Arena also provided the rubber flooring inside the tent so that skaters can safely walk around the tent.
