Arena in Marijampole

The aim of the competition was to create a space for the local basketball team and many others sporting events, including basketball, handball, indoor football, volleyball, tennis, boxing competitions, and cultural events like concerts, lectures, conferences etc.

Our sports hall seats approx. 3,000 visitors during a basketball game. Mobile stands give the possibility for creating various types of events.

The shape of the arena was inspired by the font of the Marijampole logo - its local leaf motif.

The main foyer with kiosks, presentation spaces and toilets leads visitors to the main pitch by two entrances.
Changing rooms for players, referees and work rooms for press are on the ground floor. Warehouses are located in the southern part, while the business zone with its all necessary facilities is in the west.
On the first floor there are VIP Boxes, a gym with a treadmill that runs around the stands as well as kiosks and sanitary facilities for fans.
Above the VIP boxes there is an administrative zone with 5 offices, social facilities and a reception. Technical rooms for technical equipment of the building were designed on the top floor. Rooms for a water meter unit, heating unit, power distribution room, a server room and ventilation chambers are located in technical zone on different levels.

The building is distinguished by its form, which is why the facade has been maintained in subdued, bright colors. Using the membrane as a facade material gives the opportunity to illuminate the object in any color depending on the nature of the event.
