Tammela Stadium Hybrid
Tammela Stadium is located in the city center of Tampere, surrounded by urban residential blocks. The 6 500 seat stadium will be the home for the local soccer team Ilves.
The key concept is to create a giant roof structure, which gathers all the different functions under it. In this sense, the stadium is a hybrid building with sports facilities, commercial spaces, offices and housing.
The soccer playing field are lifted above street level to allow more usable space below the field. Public functions are located in the street level surrounding the core. The apartment buildings define the outside border of the stadium block, connecting it to the surrounding urban fabric.
