Walker Zanger and Oceanside Glasstile Adorn Golden1 Boardroom
Golden 1 Center has been celebrated as a victory for our entire region—a crown jewel in the heart of our growing downtown. The venue has amenities like no other sports venue when it comes to food, technology, design, art, and let’s not forget, the fans of the Sacramento Kings.
The venue has remarkable lounges, including the spectacular Lexus Lounge for season ticket holders in the first three rows. Lesser known, however, is an even more exclusive lounge—reserved for the Sacramento Kings board members, Legacy partners, and their guests. Simply labeled Boardroom, the two-room space contains a medium-sized meeting space, as well as a spacious lounge with a private bar. This is the space that Golden 1 Center architects and designers from AECOM selected to use stunning materials from Walker Zanger and Oceanside Glasstile, both exclusively available from Natural Stone Design Gallery in the Sacramento Region.
For the private meeting room, the designers chose a combination of Walker Zanger patterns from the Sterling Row collection, Chesterfield in Linen for an eye-catching accent wall and Tuxedo in Charcoal in a chevron pattern for the flooring. Both tiles are a marble and ceramic wood pattern that provide a delicate balance of class and warmth. The patterns are inspired by fine European fabrics. The space has a stately feel to it, with a balance of luxury provided by chandeliers and wall sconces with the furnishings offering a refined mid-century modern flare. No worries however, there are also plenty of screens to keep track of the game.
In the spacious lounge, you’ll find the private bar. Behind the bar, the designers opted for a striking use of Oceanside Glasstile Tessera Collection tile in Sultry. The Kaleidoscope pattern makes for an amazing spectacle. There is no doubt that the Oceanside Glasstile commitment to sustainable materials was attractive, as Golden1 Center earned a Platinum LEED rating from the USGBC – the first indoor sports venue to do so.
For what is surely the most exclusive space inside Golden 1 Center, the polish that Walker Zanger and Oceanside Glasstile products bring to the Boardroom is undeniable. The space exudes luxury, comfort, sparkle, and class.
