Kėdainiai arena is a distinctive element of Kėdainiai sports complex designed to revitalize a north part of Kėdainiai city. Together with a city stadium and a newly-created public square the Arena has full potential to become a new centre of attraction for younger generation as well as senior citizens.Kėdainiai arena is a multifunctional sports and leisure complex serving public needs – cultural as well as sport events. It will host a city sport school, Kėdainiai basketball team and major public events: arena can easily be transformed according to user’s needs.
The building can be characterised as an example of contemporary architecture and universalism: Kėdainiai arena is a “cost-conscious” building blending aesthetics and function.
The Arena is designed as a laconic shape featuring characteristic sports elements.
Natural materials dominate in the construction: concrete, glass, galvanised steel.
The interior of the building is minimalist with the aim of focusing attention on stage.
