Malšovicka Aréna – design description
The proposal by local architect Tomas Vymetálek foresees simple rectangular stands with one continuous tier around the field, reaching total capacity of 10,000. The main stand will be somewhat dominant as its extra floor for skyboxes and control room will force locating roof slightly higher.
External cladding is proposed as a mosaic of metal web panels. Coloured from white to nearly black and with some gold panels included, these will represent colours of FC Hradec Kralove.
The landfill stands of current stadium will be demolished almost completely. Only pieces of the northern curve are to be left as public green areas. However, existing floodlights, commonly known as lollipops due to their interesting shape, will remain on site. They are to keep the status of a landmark on the southern bank of Orlice River.
New design: Here’s the stadium to be built under the lollipops
The name is sweet and so is the design: simple, yet attractive. After 6 years of efforts (!) finally the planning permission is within reach and construction should begin by year end.
Czech Rep: Hradec Kralove has to wait for new stadium
Project documentation tender had to be halted after one of the bidders filed official protest. Now building the 10,000-seat stadium in 2017 is getting unlikely.
