Zagłębiowski Park Sportowy – design description
The concept by JSK Architects won first prize in international competition commissioned by the city of Sosnowiec. The goal was to create a complex of sports facilities including football stadium (11,600 seats with option to expand to 14,546), indoor hall (3,000) and ice rink (2,500) within the existing park at Górka Środulska.
The vision received praise for the way it harmonises with existing mound. The buildings aren’t too tall, their shape mimics the hill and symmetric layout allows all three buildings to fit in the area. Each building will be covered by wooden lamellas to continue the idea of public park. Landscaping will also include trees.
The complex will be built in three phases. The main stadium will come first and should there be a need, it may be expanded by further 3,000 seats by addition of 4 rows of seating. Construction was due to begin in 2018 but a series of delays pushed groundbreaking to second half of 2019.
