As part of a multidisciplinary team we, in our bid, designed a new stadium that incorporates retail opportunities in Rotherham town centre, along the bank of the River Don.
The stadium sits in a linear riverside parkland creating important links between the stadium, the riverside and the town centre. It creates a series of public spaces that differ in scale and character offering large public spaces for events and smaller more intimate social spaces. The design is strong and coherent, provides access for all and creates a unique setting to the stadium.
The geometry of this design integrates formal links to the stadium with the flowing lines of the riverside corridor, creating plazas for gathering and a green corridor which capitalises upon the riverside location.
