The fan experience begins upon approach to the stadium, where lines of light wrap the striking façade and frame views of the torch, concourse and VIP clubs that are visible from outside. The concourse-level bar wraps around an illuminated 93-foot-tall 3D-printed sculptural torch, while bar-front lighting mimics the stadium façade and its illuminated curved lines.
The concourse, open to structure and underside of bowl, creates a language of linear pendants radial to the field, with integrated lighting at display walls. Seating-integrated lighting and a backlit ceiling element provide ambient light for VIP suites, while lines of light in a black ceiling reference the gridiron.
"Linear luminaires curve and slice through clubs and concourses as design elements to conceptually connect complex multi-level spaces,” Savage said. "The black and white material palette serves as a high contrast backdrop for directed illumination, aimed to reveal the depth and texture of the materials."
Highlighted escalators present a dramatic entrance to the Event-Level club, while the carved volume beneath becomes an intimate space with foot-level lighting. Linear lights follow the sloped ceiling with a bold graphic line of light reflected in architectural finishes.
The MGM Club highlights textured finishes in tiered concentric lighting coves above the bar and dimensional leather wall panels at perimeter. The 150-Level Club features backlit fabric ceilings and tilted linear pendants that continue into the VIP suites corridor and illuminated fins mark each suite entrance.
Curved lines of indirect light sweep through the Sideline Club, with forms echoed by lighting in the curved bar, back bar and circular bottle shelves. This consistent language of linear bar-integrated lighting carries throughout the VIP clubs, where each application still allows for individual architectural expression.
