About the project

The architectural vision behind Royal Arena is divided into a plinth and a top. The top has a semi-transparent facade, where wooden fins in a warm golden color, waves on the building in a circular motion. The light elements of the exterior façade give a warmth and texture to the building; a character and identity that, although subtle from afar.

The wave-like semi-transparent facade seemingly ‘dances’ above the surrounding podium and lifts up slightly above the natural entrances. 

The glass between the fins makes the building appear open and accessible, and the waving motion of the fins adds a playful and elegant expression to the building - kept intact via innovative solutions which allow all technical installations such as cameras, speakers, and lights, to be integrated into the facade, rather than “stuck” on to it, like known from the majority of areas before.
