Chase Center Arena, San Francisco, CA.
Home of the Golden State Warriors
Chase Center, a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco
“The array of suites, diverse clubs, and public spaces evoke a new caliber of design for arenas – a hospitable blending of high-end luxury and sports. The main concourse level emulates ambient lighting – kinetic in form – to fill the vast scale of a contemporary zone. Court-level clubs integrate an industrial theme with purposeful high-contrasting finish selections and exaggerated fixture scaling while hidden lighting illuminates open structural arena space overhead.
Utilizing an unprecedented technique, the interior lighting color rendering was specified at a warm, 3000 Kelvin, 90 CRI luminaires to support subtle layers of color-changing lighting, integrated within the interior massing of seven leveled tiers, and proudly representing the Warriors team colors of royal blue and golden yellow. Erected on schedule, within energy code compliance, and with 100% LED technology and LEED certification, the Chase Center delivers a new standard in exclusive arena design.” – First Circle Design
