Kantrida – design description
The new stadium is expected to come from joint forces of GAUARENA and local firm ZDL Arhitekti. The first company represents renowned Italian architect Gino Zavanelli, who designed the likes of Juventus Stadium and previous concept for AS Roma. His latest work is expected to become a landmark of Rijeka.
And by the looks of early renderings one thing is clear – the amazing northern cliff will be incorporated into the stadium design, becoming one of the stadium’s internal walls. Remaining stands will have a more artificial and possibly futuristic layout, created by opaque cladding with geometric perforations.
Inside the single tier of stands will accommodate 14,000 people and is expected to reach UEFA’s highest rank, Category 4. As it is today, the main stand will be kept in the south, including 3,000 corporate seats. Also along today’s layout the western end will be dedicated to 4,000 most vocal supporters.
