The intention of the client was to turn the existing football stadium into a multifunctional complex. In addition to modernizing the building, the main part of the project was to cover the arena, which would serve as a weather-independent event hall. Naturally we counted with the complete renewal of building services, electrical systems, façades and interior spaces. The reinforcement of the load-bearing structure was necessary due to the retractable roof.
