Kitchen 21
Brooklyn, NY

Originally completed in 1924, the nautical themed Childs Restaurants is a New York City designated landmark on the Coney Island Boardwalk. The building has been restored to house Kitchen 21 – a new, five-in-one restaurant designed by EwingCole. In a nod to Brooklyn’s landmark Parachute Jump, the row of restored arched windows behind the long bar overlook the Jump while a replica of one of the double seat swings that used to freefall from the amusement ride hangs inside the restaurant. The steel structures and lighting between the arched windows were inspired by historic images of the amusement parks at Coney Island in the late 1800’s -early 1900’s: Luna Park, Steeplechase and Dreamland. The seating was designed to provide optimal viewing of the stage for the restaurant patrons when the stage doors are open. The café counters are mobile and designed to allow flexibility for the restaurant: hosting movie nights, beverage tastings, or event rentals.

Davis Center Renovation
Villanova, PA

EwingCole executed a complete renovation of the existing Reception Lobby and Team Meeting Room for the Men’s Basketball program.  The Reception Lobby was modified to incorporate an efficient built-in reception desk with leather wrapped ‘basketball texture’ panel wall system, and a comfortable seating area.  A built-in, all glass trophy case recessed into a wood veneer wall system highlights the multitude of trophies and team accolades on a stainless steel and glass support system.  Corian wall panels, full glass doors, LED lighting and custom accent light wells in team colors extend up the wall and across the ceiling to further frame the trophy wall.  An updated Team Meeting Room creates a well-organized program space which can be used for several functions as a team, or in smaller sessions.  Built-in seating and work surfaces on 2 levels help maximize the use of the space.  Continuous work surfaces with integrated utilities accommodate a multitude of tasks for both players and staff.

SAP Sponsorship Fit-Out at Metlife Stadium
East Rutherford, NJ

This project is SAP/EMC’s joint, multi-million dollar ‘cornerstone’ sponsorship fit-out at Metlife Stadium.  There is a unique, multi-level environment – from branded entry gates and arrival plaza to a bespoke premium suite, the cornerstone sponsorship encompasses five levels within the stadium.  Features include interactive “shout-out” kiosks in the arrival plaza, a two-story “shimmer wall” graphic hanging in the main vertical circulation tower and a high-end suite interior with interactive, state-of-the-art audio/visual technology.  A custom “in-house” app jointly developed by the teams and SAP/EMC extends the branding beyond the physical space enabling fans to watch replay video, check fantasy football statistics, and engage with the teams and other fans via social media.  The fit-out was complete in December 2013, in time for Super Bowl XLVIII.

Philadelphia Phillies

Philadelphia Phillies

Citizens Bank Park
Philadelphia, PA

Citizens Bank Park incorporates the best aspects of the great pre-war ballparks while providing modern amenities and making use of the latest technological advances in sports entertainment.  The seating layout is inspired by the classic plans of the Baker Bowl and Connie Mack Stadium, which housed the team from 1887-1970.  The ballpark has hosted two World Series, including the victorious 2008 season.

 
“I think the ballpark is a big part of why we’re drawing the fans we are and clearly we’ve had on-field success since we’ve been in the ballpark. If you were to point to one thing that changed us as an organization, we always thought that if we could get into a baseball-only facility our whole picture would change and the reality has borne that out.”

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders

PNC Field Renovation & Addition
Moosic, PA

EwingCole developed various concepts for a major renovation to the AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre Railriders’ 10,500 seat multi-purpose stadium, which opened in 1989.  The $40 million renovation entails demolishing everything but the lower seating bowl, playing field, and the home clubhouse, which was rebuilt in 2005.  All of the non-premium seating would be confined to the lower bowl, while suite and club seating is located above the main concourse.  General admission patrons have a variety of new seating options from which to choose, such as tiered picnic areas and lawn seating.

 

“EwingCole has done a tremendous job on the design of our ballpark renovation.  The skill, creativity and leadership they showed are what we needed to make this project a reality.  This ballpark renovation is going to transform the experience of attending a game in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and we couldn’t be more excited about that for our fans.”

Kentucky Horse Park Outdoor Stadium

EOP and EwingCole teamed up to create a new venue at Lexington’s historic Kentucky Horse Park.  The design features a permanent sideline stadium of 10,000 seats with the ability to add 20,000 temporary seats, creating a full bowl stadium.  This temporary seating feature was used when the venue hosted the World Equestrian Games in 2010.  Club and banquet facilities enable the stadium to become a major destination during non-equestrian events.

 
“Every citizen of Kentucky can be proud of their Kentucky Horse Park and the influence the new facilities will have in attracting business to our commonwealth.”
