Image: The KSS-designed 30,000-seat Sammy Ofer Stadium, located at the southern gateway to Haifa, was designed in partnership with local architects Mansfeld Kehat, and is a striking new landmark in the city. The design concept combines the key stadium elements of seating bowl, roof and external envelope into a single elegant form, and the shimmering gold shingle cladding provides a strong contrast with the rugged Mount Carmel backdrop. The stadium is the new home venue for both Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Haifa in the Israeli Premier League, and also successfully hosted its first match for the Israeli national team in November 2014.
