A wooden stadium
The team proposes a stadium designed in wood - communing with the green surroundings and the cultural landscape.
Facades, materials and the special repetitive construction create a cohesion with the surrounding trees in Kongelunden. The openness of the facade on all four sides invites guests and passers-by inside.
Audience flow, access to fan zones and varying levels via balcony solutions ensure a multidimensional use of space both before, during and after matches.
The openness on the ground floor provides a transition zone between the inside and the outside.
The stadium has a kind of 'nest structure' that protects the audience from wind, sun and rain, and ensures high comfort. The structure appears light and spacious, so that the stadium opens up to its surroundings and becomes part of the surrounding forest.
