A flexible solution which makes the best possible use of the available space was the brief for the “Navarra Arena“ project in Pamplona, northern Spain. Waagner-Biro Stage Systems met this challenge by producing a special design whose “secret“ is hidden beneath the floor. After pressing a button, an otherwise hidden central stand is extended which divides the great hall into a main and a secondary independent arena.

The special feature: the central stand can be rotated using the control system in either one direction or another, depending on which event attracts the biggest audience.

The result is a partly fixed, partly mobile telescopic stand which includes a seat folding mechanism and provides room for up to 12,000 spectators.

The required four double-storey main platforms cover a total area of 600 m².

At a Glance:

  • 12,000 seats; 6,500 on retractable system (4 platforms, each 44 x 12 m)
  • 11,000 m² area with two independent spaces
