Olsztyn new stadium

Poland’s Olsztyn municipality together with local branch of the Polish Architects Association (SARP) released the results of new stadium design competition on December 11. The winning design comes from PiG Architekci, whose previous works include designing stadiums for Chorzów and Zabrze.

The announcement sets ground for one of Poland’s most beautiful regions to have its first major stadium. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2017.

Simplicity, lightness and elegance – these characteristics will define the new stadium in Olsztyn, northern Poland, along the winning concept by PiG Architekci. The 12,000-seat venue will be enveloped in a rectangular outer form. Covered with light and translucent material, the shape will reveal steel framing inside, mimicking the shape of traditional ‘Prussian walls’ typical in the region. At the same time use of translucent material will allow illuminating the entire shape from inside with various colours.

Infrastructural regulations of UEFA Category III should be met, with vast majority of facilities located traditionally in the western grandstand. The ground will have room for 320 VIP seats (6 skyboxes), 70 members of the press and 60 disabled supporters. Locations for wheelchairs will spread throughout the stadium, including the away section of 669 seats.
