The Nokia Arena in Tampere, Finland redefines the standard for sports architecture by becoming a new attraction for the entire city. Designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind together with SRV Rakennus Oy and in collaboration with local partners ARCO Architecture Company and Aihio Arkkitehdit Oy, who designed the interior spaces, the multipurpose arena is much more than just a sports centre. The ambitious project is also an urban planning solution. Constructed above the tracks of an existing railway, it brings together urban fabric and connects areas to the east with the west to create a lively centre for life, work, leisure and quality culture for the city.

The design for the artificial lighting was a fundamental component of this project. PERFORMANCE iN LIGHTING has supplied over 900 linear luminaires of the SL764 series for general lighting of large common areas, corridors and large atriums, installed with the collaboration of Caverion Suomi Oy. The challenge required customized creations, special black finishes to integrate with the architectural structure and to comply with current safety regulations. Over 2,000 m of segmented continuous lighting were installed in 2x2 m compositions that give rhythm to the ceiling by creating a luminous texture. Each luminaire was supplied pre-assembled with quick connectors to facilitate installation and reduce assembly time. 

The light is controlled using the DALI digital protocol using which different lighting scenarios can be created and energy consumption regulated. This function has contributed to the energy classification of the entire complex which, thanks to the highly sustainable design, has achieved the LEED Gold classification.

The complex as a whole also includes a hotel with 273 rooms and five mixed-use blocks with residential towers above, as well as spaces for shops and offices. The multi-purpose ice hockey arena can accommodate up to 15,000 spectators. Approximately 82,000 square meters of the area are designated for mixed use, including 64,500 square meters for the arena, 5,800 square meters for multipurpose spaces and 11,600 square meters for the hotel. With its casino, bar and restaurant, the Nokia Arena redefines its function as a hub for diverse urban activities.
