Maple Leaf Sport & Entertainment Head Offices
Located in a 15-storey office tower linked to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) is a dynamic organization that owns and operates four of the city’s professional sports franchises, the Maple Leafs hockey team, the Marlies hockey team, the Raptors basketball team, and the FC soccer team. Growth and changes within the organization led to the decision to sequentially renovate 6 floors and expand their operations into available space within the office tower. MLSE challenged ZAS to develop a state-of-the-art interior environment that: reinforces each division’s unique brand identity; that builds community; and would reflect corporate pride in the workplace. In achieving this, the design team set out to ensure the corporate culture was recognized, the work place flexible and the MLSE brand visually strengthened throughout. For instance, on each floor a circular common space was created as the focus and central meeting area for all team members of the organization. All circulation routes converge here, also providing a place for impromptu encounters. By treating the office as a “total” workplace, this space was transformed MLSE’s offices into a sports community that contains stimulating and effective workspaces.
