Description:
The expansion of Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium sits at the heart of a new 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 has increased the stadium capacity to just over 54,000. The premier Main Stand is now one the largest single stands in the country, with a full range of facilities for general admission and premium seat hospitality. The 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.

Finalist - Stadium DB, Stadium of the Year 2014
Description:
Our 30,000 seat football stadium 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.

Description:
After a long drawn out planning process, the widely acclaimed Amex Community Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion FC was finally completed in time for the 2011-12 season, marking a new era for the Club. The new venue proved so popular with the Club’s fan base that a further 8,000 seats were incorporated within the established envelope earlier in 2013 to meet increased demand, taking the final capacity to over 30,000. 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 gently into the landscape, and the curved roof structures evoke the forms of the rolling hill backdrop. The facades are cut into the hillside to reduce the visible bulk, and the resultant form presents a dramatic gateway to Brighton along the busy A27. The design of the interior hospitality spaces reflects the "Seagulls" unique personality and is influenced by both Brighton's seaside location and the stadium’s position within the rolling landscape setting. Each suite is designed for match day and non-match day usage, and has its own signature personality based on metal themes, organic shaped suspended ceilings and funky furniture. The internal fitting out also includes the museum, retail store and coffee shop, where the bold use of colour, quirky graphics and way finding again reinforces the Club's message. Completed April 2013

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.

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.

Description:
The award winning South East 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 way finding signage and branding throughout.

Description:
South Essex College's 15,000sqm further education campus provides fantastic vocational training facilities in the South Essex area, and has dramatically improved the quality of the built environment and open spaces in Grays town centre. The teaching accommodation is incorporated into two main buildings linked by a central landscaped area, with public footways running through the centre of the college to establish a link to the town centre. Whilst different in overall scale and form, both buildings are designed with a common language of materials, proportion and detail, including the use of coloured reveals to feature entrances and windows. Rainwater harvesting and roof-level PV solar panels form part of the environmental design strategy.
