Memorial Stadium West Addition

Sinclair Hille Architects was the prime consultant and Architect-of-Record for the West Addition and Renovation to Memorial Stadium on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Campus.

Design of the six-story addition reflects many of the visual elements of the original 1923 building. The multi-toned, precast concrete exterior, with its super-scaled arched windows and rhythmic pilaster ornamentation, envelop the expanded concourse and use the original West Stadium facade as an interior backdrop.

The six levels within the building include field level catering and support spaces, concourse level public concessions and restroom facilities, club level enclosed seating and special use viewing booths, and two levels of premium skybox suites. A special technology-supported press level provides space for over 200 media personnel.

The club level provides interior seating for almost 300 patrons and a 200 plus seating lounge / meeting space with spacious views across both the western prairie-scape and eastern Lincoln skyline. The 42 skybox suites each have a capacity of 20 patrons and include a two-tiered seating area, lounge space, private restroom, and a kitchen alcove.

I appreciate the ability of the Sinclair Hille Team to listen when designing a project for our campus. They have a great design process to engage faculty and staff to explore ideas, dream and then share their recommendations.
