In 2007, the Colorado Rockies upgraded nine of their existing corporate suites and combined them into three “Super Suites” for corporate entertaining and conferences.
The original suites were named after notable Colorado mountain peaks. Rather than lose those way-finding references, the design team created an inlaid stone composite mural of the peaks, along with replicas of their NGS survey markers, to create an epic landscape that ties the suites together visually. NanaWalls open the interior spaces up to the field so fans always feel like they are part of the game.
Designed in conjunction with Populous (then HOK Sport Venue Event), the team worked under the added pressure of a schedule significantly compressed by the Rockies’ dramatic run to the World Series. Round-the-clock efforts by the design team and general contractor readied the suites for Opening Day the following April. The end result is a year-round destination conference and event space within the already iconic Coors Field, and a one-of-a-kind hospitality venue in Major League Baseball.
