Climate Pledge Arena

Seattle, WA

Home of the NHL team Seattle Kraken and the WNBA Champion Seattle Storm, the 740,000 square foot Climate Pledge Arena has undergone an unparalleled transformation to create a brand-new entertainment venue under a historic roof originally built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Rockwell Group drew on its experience designing for performance, live events and hospitality to create a comprehensive set of amenities, each offering its own experience. Inspired by the Pacific Northwest, the seven spaces feature a distinctly regional feel with local materials and include a modern food hall, craft beer concourse, private restaurant, and two suite typologies.

Designed in 1962 by architect Paul Thiry as the Washington State Pavilion for the World’s Fair, the arena's radical transformation simultaneously honors Seattle's iconic history and celebrates its future.

Tunnel Club Suites

From each suite, guests can observe players walk through a tunnel from the locker room, creating a personal and theatrical connection with the game and the rituals of preparing to go out onto the court or ice.
