The scope of work includes new hospitality and support facilities together with a fixed and retractable roof covering both the playing arena and spectator seating, giving the potential for uninterrupted championship tournament play.

Description:
The expansion of Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium sits at the heart of a master plan which links Walton Breck Road to the historic Stanley Park, and forms part of a much needed wider regeneration of the Anfield area. The phased expansion will see the stadium capacity increased to just under 59,000. The first phase 20,500 capacity Main Stand completed in 2016 is now one the largest single stands in the country, and accommodates a full range of top quality facilities for players, general admission fans and premium seat hospitality. The architectural design reflects the owners’ request to maintain the traditional four stand configuration, capture the unique spirit of the venue using club and historic references, and reinforce the intense Anfield spectator experience.

Description:
The widely acclaimed and multi-award winning Amex Community Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion FC was completed in time for the 2011-12 season. The stadium proved so popular with the Club’s fanbase that a further 8,000 seats were incorporated into the established envelope the following season to meet demand, taking the headline capacity up to 30,500. The site in Falmer lies next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the South Downs, and this in turn inspired the sweeping architectural form of the stadium. The stands nestle into the landscape, and the curved roof structure and cladding evoke the forms of the rolling hill backdrop. “This will be a genuine community stadium, and first and foremost, a real and spiritual home for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.” Martin Perry, Chief Executive, BHAFC

Description:
Hale Village is currently the fourth largest residential project in London, and is a high density sustainable urban village on the edge of the Lea Valley, using the successful redevelopment of Hammarby, a waterside district of Sweden’s capital Stockholm as a model. We are responsible for four key buildings delivering 376 affordable residential units for Newlon Housing Trust to Code 4 under the Code for Sustainable Homes, plus Newlon’s own new head offices and 1425m2 of commercial/retail shell and core, later occupied by an outpatient centre for a major hospital. All are served by a site-wide CHP scheme. The residential blocks are configured to create internal courtyards which foster enhanced communal living, and are clad with a range of claddings which add to the visual “tapestry” of the overall development. Extensive green spaces, and accessible green roofs and allotments also enrich the living experience.

Description:
The award-winning South Essex College at Southend-on-Sea is a flagship education project for the Thames Gateway which sets new standards in design and is a unique showcase for modern further and higher education. The new college is a truly sustainable, low energy building combining flexible curriculum space with an ETFE clad central atrium housing a 250 seat performance “pod” and sculptural multi-level dining decks. We created colourful concepts for the main interior spaces, and inspired by the features of the new building, updated the original college logo into one which subtly formed the graphic basis of the wayfinding signage and branding throughout. Integrated into the South Essex College development, Ora is open to staff, students and members of the public. Its purpose is to provide reareal-lifeperience for catering students at the college as part of their course requirements, and generate additional revenue for the college at the same time – Food for thought indeed!

Description:
In 2008, we were proud to be selected alongside SKM and Wilkinson Eyre to design the Basketball & Handball Arena for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Games. The venue was the largest indoor temporary arena constructed for the Olympics, and provided 11,500 seats for the basketball and handball competitions, reducing to 9,800 seats for Paralympics wheelchair basketball and rugby. Our brief was to create a compact and intimate arena seating bowl, and our solution pushed the boundaries of temporary seating design in terms of layout, comfort and sightlines, and gave the feel and atmosphere of a permanent venue.

Awards:
2013 Finalist - RICS Leisure & Tourism Awards
2013 - Finalist - LABC Awards, Best Large Commercial Building
Description:
Spurs’ training centre on the 77 acre Bulls Cross site provides the highest quality playing, training and medical facilities for its first team squad and youth academy. We worked closely with the football and coaching staff to fine tune the proposals, and the result is an elegant modern building which sits quietly and comfortably in its landscaped surroundings. The main building features an 80 x 50m ETFE covered artificial pitch at its heart, and the internal configuration incorporates subtle enhancements in design which will hopefully inspire a new generation to work harder and make it to the top.

Awards:
2013 BRITISH EXPERTISE INTERNATIONAL AWARDS - HIGHLY COMMENDED BEST IN
2012 - FINALIST SPORT AND LEISURE ARCHITECT OF THE YEAR
Description:
Our 25,000 capacity stadium for Le Havre AC was won in design competition, and is Europe’s first “energy positive” stadium. The brief from the Club was to design a landmark building that would sit proudly at the entrance to the port city of Le Havre, and a venue that would deliver the “English stadia experience”. The design concept reflects the history of the Club (including its English ancestry!) and the pixelated ETFE shell cladding imitates the two core elements of sea and sky and acts as a shining beacon for the city day and night.

Cannon Road is a medium density residential scheme in Haringey forming part of a wider regeneration strategy for North Tottenham, transforming the area from predominantly light industrial to a major new residential quarter. The development of 222 affordable and shared ownership residential units within four buildings includes a 22 storey tower, 180sqm commercial space plus a new 2 form reception and primary school at its heart, all served by a site-wide CHP. The blocks are configured to create a safe and rewarding urban streetscape that encourages community interaction whilst providing good levels of space and privacy for residents. Substantial amenity space is provided in the form of private balconies, roof gardens and communal play areas.
