Rockwell Group unveil plush club and suite designs for Seattle Center Arena

I have always had a fascination with this building, and it’s exciting to be part of the team that gets to restore and re-present it to the world.
– Shawn Sullivan

As part of the renovation of the Seattle Center Arena, Rockwell Group have unveiled new renderings showing a number of the interior spaces it is creating with a distinctly premium look.

Designed in 1962 by architect Paul Thiry as the Washington State Pavilion for the World’s Fair, the 750,000sq ft (70,000sq m) venue ultimately became used for ice hockey and events.

It is currently undergoing redevelopment by Populous "to re-position the venue as the premier sports and entertainment destination in the northwest", with Rockwell Group having been enlisted to design its club and suite areas.

Tunnel Club suites will allow guests to watch players through a glass wall as they enter the playing area through the locker room tunnel.

Sideline Suites will be cantilevered over the seating bowl and are designed to offer "the comfort of home with luxurious amenities", including L-shaped bar-kitchen areas.

The Space Needle Club will be an intimate cocktail lounge providing views of Seattle's famous Space Needle and will double as an events space.

The Metropolitan Club will be a private restaurant with high-end finishes, including a plaid marble mosaic floor, charred wood walls and lantern-inspired lighting.

The Symetra Club and the WaFd Bank Club will be situated at opposite ends of the arena and will each feature a Seattle craft brewery.

And finally, the Mount Baker food hall will accommodate a range of culinary experiences for up to 1,300 people.

Shawn Sullivan, partner in charge of the project at Rockwell Group, said: "The Center is iconic. I have always had a fascination with this building, and it’s exciting to be part of the team that gets to restore and re-present it to the world."
