Royal Arena is a multi-use indoor arena in Ørestad Syd. The ground was broken for construction on 26 June 2013 with the arena opened in February 2017. It have a capacity of 13,000 for sporting events and up to 16,000 (either sitting or standing) for concerts.
Central to the design is a unique podium acting as a link to the adjoining neighborhood. This feature is designed to effectively absorb the movement of spectators through a variety of small plazas, pockets and gathering areas which have been carved from the podium’s perimeter. It simultaneously encourages the community to embrace the variety of public spaces, staircase and adjacencies which promote activity and liveliness when the building is not in use.
The wave-like semi-transparent facade that seemingly ‘dances’ above the surrounding podium allows people on the outside to enjoy glimpses of the activities within. The wavelike movements lift up slightly above the natural entry points of the Arena making way-finding easy and logical. The fins constituting the facade add warmth and texture to the building; giving the Arena a light and elegant expression.
