The Ljubljana firm OFIS of Rok Oman and Spela Videcnik is the author of the Belarusian football club Bate Borisov’s new stadium in Barysaw. With capacity for over 13,000 spectators, the building designed by the Slovenian partners has a curved shape, for better acoustics in the play area, and a skin of aluminum panels perforated with openings of different sizes. With its structure of steel and reinforced concrete, which includes two superposed perimeter trays, the stadium is set in a north-south direction in order to give both playing teams uniform sunlight. While the entrance hall is situated on the first floor, partly surrounding the grass field on the north, east, and south, a series of facilities at ground level – taking up about 3,000 square meters – includes restaurants, stores, a bowling alley, and a gym.
