The Chairman's Suites

Previously eight corporate boxes within a premiere sports arena, the design team was directed to elevate the 5408 square foot space to a modern, sophisticated venue where Canada’s elite could enjoy the game and entertain. Challenges included a fixed budget and timeline (both met) as well as a cascading ceiling due to the position of the venue beneath the arena’s raked seating. This was overcome by gracefully sloping the ceiling from 9 feet to over 14 feet, guiding the eye to the dramatic bar. The entrance via the arena, or ‘Portal’, is a short tunnel lined with vintage wines inset in bronze mirrored walls and glass ceilings with concealed lighting. Apart from its aesthetic function, the tunnel’s second purpose is to divide the lounge into two sides—left and right—which mirror each other in every respect. On each side under 9’ ceilings is banquette seating with rosewood tables accompanied by extra wide, cognac -coloured leather and polished bronze chairs. The outer wall is clad with polished bronze rods in a tartan pattern weave against an espresso backdrop. Rectangular private booths are ensconced in a matte black back-painted and bevelled glass, the inner wall is paneled in espresso leather and is lit by a polished bronze “fin” lighting fixture – custom designed by the submitting firm. Semi-circular booths are distinguished by floor-to-ceiling curved rosewood surrounds with uniquely designed, overlaid bronze screens. To each side of the Portal, semi-private booths sit inside massive, undulating rosewood surrounds. These central booths are outfitted with plush, espresso leather and are anchored by dark hardwood, laid richly in a herringbone pattern. The main bar, with a 14’ 6” ceiling, is the most striking feature in the space due to dramatically angled wall cladding achieved by using bronze mirror and back-painted black glass.
