Telstar Stadion – stadium description
Surrounded by forests, this rural stadium not far from Amsterdam was opened back in 1948 and live to see a rebirth in the twenty-first century. Brand new main grandstand was opened in the west, designed by Zwarts en Jansma Architecten.
The stand represents a distinctive aesthetic approach with glass and dark brick interacting in the elevation, while wood and lightweight cloth create a very “green” roof. The use of membrane to cover spectators also assures high sunlight access to the inside, where modular hospitality areas are created. There was also a renovated east side grandstand already in place. In 2010 a new south stand joined, while the old northern terrace is closed off.
