Our proposal for a new 15,000 seat indoor arena wraps the entire venue with an elegant timber cladding and glazed external skin. The climatised space in between these elements houses concourses and circulation to emphasise connection with the new suburb of Ørestad which surrounds the site.
The heart of the building is an open public café from which the main staircases and escalators originate. The arena itself features a seating layout that accommodates the diverse range of events for which the arena has been designed.
We combined configurations optimised for sporting events including ice hockey, handball, gymnastics and netball with a layout appropriate for concerts and musical and cultural events. The result offers the venue operator a degree of flexibility rarely seen in contemporary stadia.
Corporate boxes and Platinum Lounges are located on all four sides of the arena with a public Skybar at the top, offering panoramic views on both event and non-event days.
