Ipswich Town FC | UK

Christopher was the design director for the new 7000 seat Sir Bobby Robson stand for Ipswich Town FC.  The £11m stand is arranged over 2 seating tiers dramatically cantilevering the expressed form of the seating tier out over Portman Road.  The simple form of the concourse spans between two good ended volumes that house retail, restaurants and bars and act as multi-media billboards.  The composition of simple volumetric forms creates an iconic image for the stand while contextually completing the Portman Road Stadium.  Pre-cast white concrete shear walls create a civic streetscape onto Portman Road.
