This grandstand building for an athletics and football stadium is situated in an important area for local recreation in the Basel region: Brüglinger Ebene. The new building meets the functional requirements of a grandstand and changing room facility on the one hand, while enriching the park grounds with its spatial and aesthetic quality on the other hand. Its architectural language refers back to the time when the sports grounds were established.


Pavilion: The grandstand building extends along the alley between St. Jakobs-Promenade and Mittlere Allee. Resembling a pavilion, the projecting roof that faces the alley spans a sheltered area. The delicate structure incorporates the rhythm of the row of trees, such that the long building respects the scale of the alley.

Stadium: On the stadium side, the roof projects further, protecting the grandstand, which is an extension of the existing spectator facility. Here, using the same architectural means, the building takes on a completely different appearance: that of a stadium. It is thus referred to as the "Padion" (pavilion/stadium).
