Estadio El Sadar – design description
OFC Architects from Gran Canaria are signed under the project named “Muro Rojo” (Red Wall). Instead of a structural solution, the name is associated – as you may have guessed – with the atmosphere generated by supporters. The goal was to create a very atmospheric and imposing stadium, one that would intimidate opposition players.
Means of reaching the goal are indeed interesting. The more conventional one is the inclusion of 1,300 rail seats (de facto standing terrace) for the home support. The more impressive one is the addition of a new C-shaped upper tier on three sides. Not only does it enclose the seating bowl, it's also overhanging significantly and has a rake of 40º, making it one of the steepest among new stadia.
Thanks to the vertical expansion, the stadium will have an almost uniform height instead of current domination of the south side. Thie encourages a brand new outer form, which in turn was divided into two distinct shapes. The lower plinth is created with concrete and covered by perforated mesh, while the opaque upper form, more slender and lightweight, should be clad entirely with corrugated metal sheet.
The design created very significant amount of floor space for mixed use. On ground level there's over 1,400 m2 for commercial uses, while provision of further 3,300 m2 on first level makes this proposal stand out among other contenders.
New stadium: Osasuna fans no longer blush with shame
You say Pamplona, you think corrida. When you think of corrida, the red colour comes to your mind. And when it's about red, then... the new Osasuna stadium is all you should focus on. Estadio El Sadar underwent an extensive €23.3 million redevelopment and is no longer a source of embarrassment for local fans.
Spain: El Sadar ready, all it needs now is fans
Guided tours of the revamped stadium are so popular that it will be hard to book a visit in weeks. As for reopening of El Sadar, Osasuna’s president wants to wait until full capacity is allowed. How much did the project cost in the end?
Spain: New El Sadar shining bright
On Monday fans will see the stadium complete, even if (because of COVID) only from the outside and on TV. As the reconstruction sees its very last moments, the question of debt repayment was recently raised.
Spain: El Sadar faces final works on site
The new stadium of the CA Osasuna has recently witnessed a serious progress on the site. Works on the El Sadar Stadium are entering their final phase with the necessary roof finishing. The venue is expected to be completed in January.
Spain: Osasuna presents updated design
Roof over the main grandstand could not be saved, so a new one has been designed. This, along with additional commercial space, makes the conversion of El Sadar a tad more expensive.
Spain: Muro Rojo – the choice of Osasuna
Record high turnout and quite decisive selection of the winning design: supporters of Osasuna chose the Muro Rojo vision. Now the club needs to have funding approved in order to go forward.
