Our new 25,000 capacity stadium for Le Havre AC was won in design competition, and is Europe’s first “energy positive” stadium.
The brief from the Club was to design a landmark building that would sit proudly at the entrance to the Port City of Le Havre, and a venue that would deliver the “English stadia experience”.
The design concept reflects the history of the Club (including its English ancestry!) and the envelope colours imitate the two core elements of sea and sky. The stadium is enveloped in a pixelated ETFE shell, and becomes a shining beacon for the city day and night.
