Idrottsområde Söder Kristianstad

FOJAB has designed a functional and attractive sports area adjacent to Kristianstad Arena. The project was a turnkey contract with partnering, where the client, the contractor, users and the operating organization contributed with their experiences and were involved in designing the project.

FOJAB has done the conceptual work for the entire area. The sports area was expanded to include new football pitches, refurbished athletics facilities and new tennis courts. The new 1200-seat football stadium meets the requirements for elite-level football and American football. In addition, kiosks, a VIP restaurant and changing rooms were created.

The football stand is the main building in the project. It has a heavy base in raw concrete on the ground floor, with associated rooms for players and officials. Levels two and three contrast with a light character and are intended for the audience.

Kristianstad Arena was completed in 2010, but the sports ground as a whole was old and worn out. South of the arena was a run-down industrial area. When this area was demolished and included in the plan, a nice connection was formed to Björket - a lovely green area with running trails.

Work began in the fall of 2016 and was completed in 2018.
