Gensler collaborated with Manica Architecture and Kendall/Heaton Associates on the new Chase Center, home of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors. The 18,000-seat, 450,000 square foot arena is the anchor for an affiliated 11-acre, mixed-use entertainment district and public waterfront park at Mission Bay.
Primed for game day and entertainment events, a variety of spaces diversify the experience for guests. Taking cues from hospitality and cinematic framing, public interior spaces including lobbies and concourses are the backdrop for art and sculptures on loan from SFMOMA. The range of premium areas include courtside suites, lounges, theater boxes, and a Skybar that engage attendees whether they’re watching the game or taking in views of the bay. Meanwhile, team spaces including locker rooms, an in-house training facility, and administrative spaces set the tone for players on and off game day.
