New Grandstand, Hospitality Area and Linking Walkway
Barberino del Mugello (FI), 2011
The New Grandstand is designed to accommodate 4,127 seats, of which 213 VIP, 1,054 quality, 30 places for the disabled, and 2,830 ordinary seats. The Hospitality Area consists of a covered terrace which at regular intervals features two blocks containing restrooms and the vertical connection elements. The walkway is structurally and architecturally designed to constitute a lightweight link between the New Grandstand, the Paddocks and the other Hospitality areas. Structurally, the grandstand was built using step-bearing beams in pre-stressed concrete, and the roofing in panels with a metalwork load-bearing structure has a photovoltaic system on top.
