KUBAN Arena – 45000 capacity stadium located in Krasnodar. City Counsil approved the project in full scale. Theree different concept have been presented al developed by SYNTHESIS. The winer concept has been delivered in colaboration with AFL Architects Manchester UK.
The stadium has been designed to follow the rules and regulations set by FIFA; VIPs and players will have a private access to the stadium in order to ensure safety; in case of emergency the stadium gates will open automatically and allow people a safe exit.
The football pitch will be aligned on a roughly north-south axis, as requested by FIFA rules, with the skyboxes located on the both the west (Luxury Skybox) and the east stand (Standard Skyboxes or Skylounges): positioned on the long side of the field and at an ideal height, will ensure excellent visibility.
The Stadium is in the center of a complex comprising a shopping mall (adjacent to it) and a 100 rooms hotel
The new stadium is built on a small, gentle hill, and will recall a silky cocoon, with metallic stripes and sticks enclosing a reinforced concrete structure, cut by huge translucent openings.
Light will be able to penetrate the outer skin, allowing natural light in during the day; during the night, light from within will filtrate through the envelope, making the stadium glow with changing colors.
