• TIME WARNER CABLE ARENA

    Location: CHARLOTTE, NC

    Located in downtown Charlotte, the Time Warner Cable Arena (formerly Charlotte Bobcats Arena) serves as the home of the Charlotte Hornets (formerly Bobcats) basketball team as well as being a major venue for concerts and events in the city, including home to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The public areas of the project include the 18,500 seat arena, 3,500 sf team store, restaurants and sports bar, outdoor terraces, and entrance and circulation areas, while private and team areas include locker rooms, administrative offices and team practice courts.

    The brick and metal panel exterior of the building is designed to create an industrial atmosphere, reminiscent of the downtown warehouses in Charlotte. The industrial feel is continued into the building by exposing much of the concrete structure and ductwork that runs throughout the building as well as utilizing stained concrete for much of the floor material. 

    At the team store, located adjacent to the main entry on Trade and Fifth Street, abstract basketball imagery is used to define the team brand, while also providing a means to display team merchandise and memorabilia. Organizationally, the checkout kiosks are centrally located to allow for ease of access and also provide clear sightlines to all parts of the store for security. The bold colors of the team are heavily utilized in the kiosks, floating ceiling, and merchandise displays and are contrasted against the raw concrete structure and floors within the building. Electronic displays and a scrolling “ticker” are also integrated to provide updated information on scores, statistics, and team news at all times. 

    The design team, which was led by Kansas City based Ellerbe Beckett collaborated with The Freelon Group (Victor Vines, Principal-in-Charge) along with Odell Associates, created a heavily used and dynamic venue in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. As one of the Principals-in-Charge, Victor led the design team for the NBA and WNBA team locker rooms and practice courts, the team store, Backcourt restaurant, and the vertical circulation systems including, stairs, elevators and escalators within the building.
