Lumen Field Modernization

Seattle, WA

A series of renovations improve the fan experience with upgraded hospitality, better circulation, and an environment that allows the property to operate year-round.

In addition to being the home of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and the  Sounders and Reign soccer teams, Lumen Field is a 365-days-a-year operational stadium with multiple events beyond sports, including  concerts, monster truck competitions, and conventions. More than two decades after its 2002 opening, the stadium commissioned several modernization projects to improve the fan experience and boost revenue; the upgrades include new club areas, concourse enhancements, new video board studies, and improved fan amenities and circulation.

The first of these projects transformed an underutilized circulation space under the Hawk’s Nest North grandstand into two active and animated bars with views to the field, plus hospitality spaces with a central fireplace for fans to enjoy a beverage and watch the game.

The 1976 Club within the T-Mobile end zone transformed an aging and outdated hospitality space into an all-inclusive premium experience. A full sports bar, complete with a 60-by-11-foot, high-definition LED wall, is bracketed by semi-private box-style seating overlooking the field on both sides of the south end zone video board.

Critical to these projects was the requirement to maintain operations and the clean appearance of an active and open stadium while these new spectator amenities were under construction. The design team worked hand-in-hand with the contractor on a challenging schedule during the NFL off-seasons from 2022-2024, with the requirement to open this new space by the start of the 2024-2025 NFL season.
