ka Completes Cleveland Indians Premium Club Suite

by Craig Wasserman1. July 2013 05:00

 

ka completed the Cleveland Indians Premium Club Suite at Progressive Field in April 2013, just in time for the Major League Baseball season. The 5,000 SF design-build project with Gilbane transformed 11 existing suites on the ballpark’s press level into a spacious 120-seat entertainment venue. With a concept design provided by Populous, ka’s scope of work as design and executive architect included new balcony seating, new field side glazing system, a sports bar and interior finishes and furnishings.

The generous interior space completely opens up to the outdoor, tiered balcony seating via full-width sliding glass doors. With the outdoor and indoor spaces linked together, patrons are given the opportunity to sit outside along the balcony or inside in a restaurant setting.

“The Premium Club Suite was developed as a new approach to suite and spectator design, focusing on the fan experience,” says Bill Ragaller, ka’s Director of Architecture & Interior Design. “It gives the spectators the ability to view the game from multiple vantage points, while socializing and dining in a more conducive setting.”

Adding to the fan experience are back-lit display cases of Indians memorabilia, large screen televisions to view the game, and the suite opening into a broadcast booth. “The adjacent broadcast booth allows ballpark visitors to experience pre- and post-game commentary and interact with Indians broadcasters,” says Ragaller.

The fast-track requirements of the project required ka to closely coordinate with the client and consultants, resulting in a successful project for the major league ballpark.
