Description Change this

Sports Park Stožice is a hybrid project. Its realisation is the result of the public-private partnership between the city of Ljubljana and Grep development company. The Sports Park Stožice combines a football stadium and a multi-purpose sports hall with a large shopping centre, which is covered by a recreational park landscape. Due to the concentration of various spontaneous and programmed activities, as well as sports and entertainment events attracting people of all ages and interests both during the daytime and in the evenings, the 187,500sqm Sports Park Stožice becomes one of the major focal points of Ljubljana’s urban life.

The sports hall and the football stadium buildings, together with the large monolithic, prism-shaped residential towers of the BS3 neighbourhood, the World Trade Center and Smelt buildings on the west side, and the forest island on the east side, form a cluster of recognisable structures at the north-eastern entrance into the city. The two storeys of the shopping centre and the indoor car park occupy the 12-metre deep disused gravel pit. The park covering the roof of the shopping centre links the cultural landscape by the river Sava across the northern section of the outer road ring with the green urban space in the city centre. The entire newly-built structure is integrated into the space so as to retain and emphasise the horizontal, planar character of the open space. The stadium and sports hall buildings frame the views of the Alps towards the north, and of the castle hill and city centre towers towards the south.
