Sammy Ofer Stadium, Haifa, Israel

Project Details

Our 30,000 seat football stadium at the southern gateway to Haifa was designed in partnership with local architects Mansfeld Kehat, and is a str­­iking new landmark in the city.

The design concept combines the key stadium elements of seating bowl, roof and external envelope into a single elegant form, and the shimmering gold shingle cladding provides a strong contrast with the rugged Mount Carmel backdrop.

The stadium is home to both Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Haifa in the Israeli Premier League, and the top quality facilities and intense atmosphere generated within the bowl has also led to it being used extensively for the Israeli national team’s home fixtures.
