TATA-STEEL STADIUM

In 2009 a new main stand for football club Telstar and Stormvogels in Sportpark Schoonenberg/Velsen has been opened, designed by Zwarts & Jansma Architects.

The stadium is situated on an old rural estate in Velsen. The design responds to its green surroundings by using natural materials. This is clearly shown at the stand itself: continuous wooden rafters carry a roof made of light transparent membrane. This uncommon solution provides the seating area with good lighting conditions. The interior with its business lounges also profits – they too remain well-lit despite of the canopy.

The canopy’s shape is defined by pulling down the centre point of each cloth, tensioning the membrane and creating a funnel. Specially designed collectors under these funnels lead the rainwater to the sewer, using flexible pipes.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
