Emotion, Function and Identity
Sport is emotion! Many people identify themselves with a stadium or a multipurpose arena.
Architecture creates room for identification and identity.
Sports buildings for the location
We design our arenas especially for their location. And they don't just comply with formal and building regulations requirements. They reflect the regional, cultural, and climatic peculiarities of their location and become something to be identified with.
The monofunctionality of the football stadium no longer exists. Arenas are now places where people of all backgrounds and cultures can come together: sports can still be played and enjoyed here, but concerts, congresses and trade fairs can be held here too. It is no longer enough for an architect to be competent at "stadia". We can bring our experience gathered in designing and implementing many other typologies into play.

Mono-functionality does not exist anymore
We meet the highest requirements
When building sports arenas, the highest demands are made of all areas of the planning process: recognisability, safety, sound insulation, fire prevention and many more. Not only do the global guidelines of the sports associations have to be adhered to, local requirements must also be satisfied. The level of responsibility we have towards the users, the environment, the residents and the city is extremely high.
Everything comes together in stadium construction: emotion, identity, but also security, noise protection, fire protection and more.
We bring the necessary experience to the table: over the years, we have designed and built many stadia and sports facilities and we have a deep understanding of all the related typologies.
