Phyllis Court Grandstand

Project Details

£1m to £1.99M

Alteration to existing property, Listed Building - Grade II, New Build


Hives Architects LLP

John Adams House , 29 Castle Street , READING , RG1 7SB , United Kingdom

We designed a sensitive extension and enclosure of the Grade II listed Grandstand to ensure if can it be used throughout the year. The building now benefits from improved access including lifts and stairs, new kitchens and bathrooms. A new tensile structure roof over the upper floor is provided to mimic the original canvas canopy. The building which was originally left empty for much of the year, is now used daily, for dining and meetings, weddings and corporate entertainment during the Henley Regatta.
