Arsenal Dial Square

The Dial Square lounge pays homage to the sundial above the entrance of the Royal Arsenal armaments factory that ensured workers were always on time (or realised they were late) throughout the nineteenth century.

Location London Borough of Islington, London

Sector Stadia

Size: 1,394m2 Timescale: 10 weeks

At Podium Level, guests are greeted with reclaimed corrugated metal wall panels and weathered oak panelling, acting as a visual nod towards the Industrial Revolution. At the top of the Club Level stairs and escalator, awaits a show-stopping, handmade mosaic showpiece of the famous Dial Square sundial. Measuring nearly 4m x 4m, the stunning showpiece was manufactured from tens of thousands of hand-cut mosaic tiles.

Continuing the industrial theme, the two main bars have been finished in an Iron Corten work surface with a front panel of golden rays, complemented by a rich mix of Victorian mosaic floor tile and black oak for added warmth.

Portview delivered two new dining options for the club, including the Rotisserie Square, and Courtyard Oven, the first open-flame pizza oven kitchen at a Premier League stadium, contributing to a revenue increase of 105%. 

Portview delivered the double-height, Courtyard Bar, including the manufacture and installation of a 5m x 5m bar featuring 49 hanging globe pendant light

Key Point

Bringing the outdoors in, the space also features four planter units with 5m tall artificial trees and two large high-definition video walls, individually measuring 16” x 55”.
