The New York Liberty have recently unveiled their new 6,000-sf locker room and lounge at Barclays Center. The project was designed and completed by a team of women from Shawmut Design and Construction and Generator Studios with women’s comfort and preferences in mind.

The project was created for the Liberty’s first year playing their home games at Barclays Center. The redesigned space includes new lockers, a players’ lounge, new operating systems, and a shower and bathroom layout with extended space for dressing and makeup mirrors.
