The new foot­ball sta­dium is a brand new attrac­tion for the Rus­sian metro­po­lis of Kras­no­dar both visu­ally and soci­ally. Shr­ou­ded in the atmos­p­heric light of Selux lumi­nai­res, this amp­hi­the­a­tre-like con­struc­tion radi­a­tes an unmis­ta­ka­ble energy out­wards – the­reby ren­de­ring a remar­ka­ble con­cept by gmp Archi­tects and Con­cept­licht a rea­lity.

The new home of FC Kras­no­dar was opened in Octo­ber 2016. Ari­sing from nothing, this high-tech buil­ding was con­struc­ted in the space of just three years and now pro­vi­des space for 34,000 fans.

The archi­tec­tu­ral con­cept by Gerkan, Marg and Part­ner Archi­tects is charac­te­ri­sed by its clas­sic con­struc­tion, pre­mium qua­lity mate­ri­als and state-of-the-art tech­no­logy while, with its three-part façade, the refe­rence the buil­ding makes to ancient amp­hi­the­a­tres, the pro­to­type for all modern stadia, is unmis­ta­ka­ble. The façade is made from light Roman tra­ver­tine and is illu­mi­na­ted gently and aes­the­ti­cally. The plan­ning by Con­cept­licht recom­men­ded the look and feel of an ancient amp­hi­the­a­tre be rein­for­ced by ligh­ting, to enable the emo­ti­o­nal nature of spor­ting events to be enhan­ced by a dis­tinct light mood.

To achieve the requi­red ligh­ting ambience, Selux custom-pro­du­ced around 1,100 inte­rior and exte­rior lumi­nai­res spe­ci­ally for the pro­ject. Since the ligh­ting con­cept requi­red highly pre­cise Grenz ray angles for lumi­nai­res in dif­fe­rent buil­ding areas, Selux devel­o­ped 25 dif­fe­rent types of spe­cial lumi­nai­res. The dim­ma­ble LED crown lights have been cus­to­mi­sed so their light is restric­ted even before it exits the lumi­naire, ena­bling the under­side of the façade sof­fits to be accen­tu­a­ted opti­mally with light while not illu­mi­na­ting the upper cross­be­ams. On the façade, in the entrance area and on the podium, direct bea­ming cor­nice lights have been deployed for a high level of visual plas­ti­city.

An attrac­tive, highly powerful lumi­nous LED light cei­ling over the entrance cre­a­tes a wel­co­ming feel over a length of approx. 22 metres, with the opal glass dif­fu­ser at the side ensu­ring bac­k­ligh­ting of the ver­ti­cal cei­ling ele­ments. First and fore­most, the func­ti­o­nal ligh­ting is desig­ned to gua­ran­tee a safe and pleasant stay in the foot­ball arena. In the cor­ri­dor areas, ter­race entran­ces and wal­k­ways, flush-moun­ted lumi­nai­res with various emis­sion angles and direct-bea­ming lumi­nai­res have been instal­led in cei­ling cas­set­tes for effi­cient ligh­ting, while effec­tive, reces­sed wall lumi­nai­res with a light con­trol­ler have been instal­led in the stair­case tran­si­ti­ons.

To visu­ally enhance the stair­ca­ses and tran­si­ti­o­nal areas, the ligh­ting plan­ners opted for LED light cubes in various sizes: large lumi­nous cases of up to 2.80 x 2.00 metres scat­ter light via an opal dif­fu­ser, with each one sup­por­ting a direct-bea­ming down­light in the centre. Selux also pro­vi­ded various light steles and pole-top lumi­nai­res for the ligh­ting of the podium and the sur­roun­ding areas. Besi­des the out­stan­ding light qua­lity, a fur­ther fea­ture of these four-metre high light steles with inte­gra­ted spe­cial optics is how they are equip­ped with multi-func­ti­o­nal acces­so­ries such as loud­spea­kers, came­ras and an emer­g­ency unit. Over the fore­court, Avanza lumi­nai­res cast uni­form light, blen­ding in har­mo­niously with the archi­tec­ture of this sports arena due to their dis­tinc­tive design lan­gu­age.

The sta­dium con­struc­tion in Kras­no­dar is far from just a spa­cious and highly ambi­tious buil­ding pro­ject howe­ver – the pri­mary aim of the client was sustai­na­bi­lity in the long term. Here, effi­cient LED ligh­ting tech­no­logy craf­ted by Selux makes both a deci­sive con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mer­cial use of the sta­dium while at the same time visu­ally enhan­cing the building’s archi­tec­tu­ral aes­the­tic.

  • The perfect blend of technology and design – with two luminaire sizes and various reflector systems, the Avanza family can perform a wide range of lighting tasks in urban spaces. Efficient mid-power LEDs combined with unique freeform reflectors form the basis for high-performance lighting technology. LED clusters are aligned in the main light direction and combined with reflectors coated with purest aluminium ensure a high level of luminous efficiency. Designed from a single cast part, with its clear design language, the Avanza lends an aesthetic touch to streets, squares, pathways, and parks. However, it is its outstanding light quality that is decisive – standards-conforming of course, but above all har-monious with soft brightness transitions and variable light power. With appropriate control devices and interfaces, the Avanza is also optimally prepared for intelligent lighting concepts in smart cities. With its high quality luminaire design and high-performance lighting technology, Avanza is a future-oriented lighting solution that, when combined with the aesthetic of wooden poles, creates a special spatial ambiance.
