FEATURED GLASS: STADIP COOL-LITE SKN 165
With the opening of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in April 2019, ‘Spurs’ have had a new home designed by Populous. The football club’s arena is located in the Tottenham district of Haringey, North London. It replaces White Hart Lane, which was demolished there in 2017.
In addition to football matches, the new building will also host matches of the US Football League NFL - the football field is located under the completely retractable lawn. In addition, concerts or private events such as banquets and conferences also take place in the multifunctional arena, which can accommodate up to 62,062 spectators. In terms of safety, acoustics and comfort, the building meets the highest standards.
The multi-layer stadium shell rises above an earthing concrete base. It consists of an outer circumferential steel level and an inner layer of 14,500 square metres of Saint-Gobain STADIP COOL-LITE SKN 165. The upper section of the building is formed by a vaulted roof clad in steel. The outer façade layer consists of 4,801 vertical, perforated steel panels, some of them are arranged like scales. The design highlight is the fan area with a five storey atrium facade of 7,000 square meters of glass.
