FTC Stadium (Groupama Arena) – Budapest, Hungary

Codina Architectural Budapest Stadium Metal Mesh


Architectural mesh for sport facilities and stadiums

The enclosure of the Groupama Arena stadium is actually a large transparent shell that completely covers the steel and concrete structure. This unique facade and roof has been covered with 9,000m2 of stainless steel metal mesh; the Eiffel 40100 model by Codina Architectural. To make it more spectacular at night, an architectural lighting project has been implemented to create scenographic lighting effects. The sports facility, designed by the SAMO studio and built by Market Epito, has 22,000 seats and has received the Construction Industry Award – Public Building category and a special prize in the Real Estate Development Award, both fostered by Hungarian business entities.
