Arena FC Krasnodar
gmp Architects and Speech Architecture used over 10,000 m² of HAVER Architectural Mesh as ceiling design at the Arena FC Krasnodar, Russia.
The new stadium of FC Krasnodar was designed by the architecture office gmp architects from Germany and the Russian office Speech Architecture. The monumental façade of the elliptical stadium is a total of 43 meters high and covered with light-colored travertine. Still under construction, the stadium has already been nicknamed the “Krasnodar Coliseum”, because of its columns spread over three levels of the façade, which strongly resembles the ancient Roman Coliseum.
Not only the appearance of this impressive building makes the stadium unmistakable – it also has its own special features. Two of these highlights are the completely covered and with radiant heater equipped visitor ranks, as well as the futuristic 360° video screen over the entire upper level.
Ceiling elements made of HAVER Architectural Mesh
HAVER Architectural Mesh is suitable for covering technical systems. It meets the highest demands for fire safety and due to the semi-transparency the function of ventilation systems, air-conditioning and sprinkler systems remains without restrictions. Mesh elements can be realized straight or wavy, in strained tracks or in removable elements. Also technical components such as lighting fixtures or sprinklers can be integrated into the mesh ceiling.
