The multi-purpose venue, which opened in January 2009, comprises a 6,000-seat space for sports events, cultural events and conferences, as well as a smaller 500-seat hall.
The functional elements of the building are specifically designed for a circular base. Designed as a glass ring encircling an elliptical shell, the lighthouse is a statement landmark building in the landscape. Large and geometric in design, the building then becomes an essential focal point
for the regeneration of a mixed urban fabric.
Beyond the urban design context, the building is an efficient tool adapted to a complex programme. Designed with the idea that technology should disappear into the background, in favour of form and transparency, the building can be enjoyed from both inside and outside.
