Air Canada Signature Club

DesignAgency as Interior Architects

The most luxurious member’s club in Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, Air Canada Signature Club treats its guests to an 8,800-sf space designed for premium, unrivaled entertaining. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment asked DesignAgency to re-envision the existing club, and to establish a pre-eminent hospitality experience that impresses well beyond the game or event itself.

 

Since the club is located in a discrete zone behind the arena seating, the design team was challenged to create a range of dining experiences within the space’s elongated proportions and its varying ceiling heights, while establishing a variety of opportunities for socializing and for privacy as desired. Behind the discretely marked walnut doors members are immersed in warm walnut and pink marble surfaces, glittering brass details, and soft ambient lighting.

 

The new lounge is synonymous with deluxe hospitality, where thoughtfully curated spaces, sensuous materials and beautiful lighting form the backdrop for an elegant experience and culinary excellence. A new central lounge and bar area features a curvilinear leather paneled bar ringed by navy leather barstools with comfortable, rounded backs and a continuous bar-top surface fit for dining. Italian oak wood floors provide a warm, heritage ambiance and rotating contemporary installations over the perimeter banquettes delight regular visitors with a changing mood.

 

The space transitions from a lounge to a more formal dining area with a spectacular, sparkling marble and brushed brass bar. Oxblood leather tufted banquet booths backed by fluted glass screens enable more secluded conversations. A series of wood paneled private dining rooms, each with domestic proportions and custom lighting allow guests to entertain in their own inner sanctum. A walk-through wine cellar with hidden decanting drawers’ doubles as a second exit from which guests can proceed to their seats on the arena floor.
