Project Description


The Arena Thun is commonly referred to as the “jewel” in the Swiss Super League stadiums. With just over 10‘000 seats the arena is compact, but outstanding by the unique location and a coherent architectural concept. There is hardly another stadium where the action is this close to the pitch.
For the moments before and after sports the Panorama Center shopping mall can be found immediately adjacent. The mall provides an area of 15‘000 m2 and offers everything your heart desires – from fashion to electronics, from leisure to home improvement.
Due to the restaurants, the generous garage and the comfortably appointed VIP rooms the facility is well suited for major cultural and sporting events, but also for conferences, banquets and many other occasions. The breathtaking Alpine panorama makes this place truly unique.

Acoustics and Technology

The WSDG designed room acoustics concerns all relevant areas, including the materialization of the stadium roof underside. This allows for an intense, inspiring community experience, while maintaining a comfortable intimacy, excellent speech intelligibility and a limited impairment of the neighborhood.
The WSDG designed electro-acoustic system allows an excellent, targeted supply of the stadium, circulation, and shopping areas with voice and music content. Fully digital signal distribution and control combined with permanent signal monitoring and redundancy of key components and network connections make the system compliant with the strict requirements for audio evacuation systems.
