As the Topgolf brand evolves we would expect nothing less of the building than to do the same. Topgolf is a state-of-the-art golf, entertainment, and social gathering place that combines an exciting gaming experience with an upscale dining atmosphere.  At its core, Topgolf exists to entertain every guest through energy and passion with a commitment to excellence, quality, and community. Topgolf prides itself on providing a positive atmosphere where both family and friends can relax in an environment that is redefining sports and elevating entertainment. Aria started working with Topgolf in 2010 and in 2012 created the building that can be seen all over the country. This year the first new generation of Topgolf opened in Glendale Arizona.

The building’s overall aesthetic is modern with intersecting planes of building elements and welcomes guests with a carved out entry volume. The exterior palette is composed of a porcelain tile with stone like variation, metal composite panel, and a vertical board made from recycled rice husk. Within the field porcelain tile, a contrasting tile strip is used horizontally to break down the tile walls as well as the introduction of an argyle pattern within the EIFS zone to create additional interest within the overall building design. The lower 14 feet of the patio side of the building is clad with vertical boards to create a pedestrian scale to the three-story structure. Large spans of tinted glass express the building function and allow views throughout the facility.

A three-tiered outdoor experience flanks the entry. The lower patio boasts comfortable seating, music, and games for all. The second tier balcony overlooks views to the patio and the top level roof terrace connects to an indoor bar. At the main entry level, a two-story TV screen is set up for watching the big game. The event spaces are inviting and comfortable for any event.

Be on the lookout for this new building that is popping up nationwide.
