Ball Arena

Denver, Colorado
United States

Ball Arena is Denver’s premier hub for sports and entertainment, serving as a home for professional franchises in the NBA, NHL, and MLL (Major League Lacrosse), in addition to hosting multiple touring artists and shows throughout the year. With ownership seeking to inject excitement into the programming experience and surrounding community, a color-changing exterior lighting treatment was introduced that allows the arena to align its color scheme with upcoming events.

In addition to the exterior façade, HLB was involved with lighting control specification, and coordinated with the integrator for commissioning and programming of the lighting system. A custom shroud was developed in collaboration with the lighting manufacturer to shield a direct view of the fixture LED diodes at the underside of the "crown" element.

Dynamic, color-changing LEDs provide the necessary flexibility to support a myriad of functions and events, and reaffirmed the Ball Arena as a standout structure within Denver’s cityscape.
