Kauffman Stadium Improvements at Royals Ballpark
The recent Kauffman Stadium renovation for the Royals Ballpark in Kansas City was lead by the architects at Populous. Zahner provided an exterior stainless steel facade as well as improvements to the interior experience. The Zahner scope also included the Royals Crown artwork which can be seen atop the ballpark’s digital scoreboard.
The new structure at the Royals stadium features two sections which use selective perforations in stainless steel to create the image of the Royals logo on the surface of the metal. This perforated surface wraps the entire building, yielding a mesh facade which provides light, air control, and an visually intriguing artistic aesthetic.
A pattern of perforations and dimples allows glimpses of the original structure and the emblazoned the Royals’ graphic adds visual delight. Daylight and air transverse the facade, and the result is a breezy atmosphere which anticipates the excitement of the ballpark within.
