a new "house of lakers"
The new two-story facility supports a new era for the franchise, and establishes synergies between basketball and business operations. The training center creates a headquarters for the LA Lakers and integrates corporate partner UCLA Health. It was designed around the values defined by the team: Integration, Legacy, Amenity and Partnership.
The design honors the legacy of the franchise while looking toward the future. The interplay of transparency and light between spaces integrates the two entities, while the hospitality-oriented environment focuses on players to empower a new legacy for the Los Angeles Lakers. The facility also houses the South Bay Lakers G-League team. The double court hosts public exhibitions and games.
