The redevelopment of the Riverside Stand for Fulham FC will create a vibrant new destination within this part of West London, providing new facilities for the local community and benefitting local businesses by drawing an influx of new visitors to the area.
The building’s form echoes the gentle curve of the river, while a gleaming glass façade bathes the interiors in natural light, providing stunning views from every level. The elegant, timber-clad roof structure is supported by steel trusses to create the striking visual effect of the roof floating in the air, high above the seating tier.
Populous’ multi-use scheme considers the requirements of all stakeholders to create a riverside development befitting of its prominent location on the Thames. In addition to increasing the seating capacity at the stadium, the scheme incorporates restaurants overlooking the river, events spaces, a health club complete with roof-top pool, serviced apartments and a roof terrace.
It will of course address the Club’s operational and sporting requirements during the football season, but importantly also provide a community hub that will add to the vibrancy of the area on non-match days. The full development scheme will also see the creation of a new public riverside walkway, which will allow the Thames Path to be fully continuous in this part of the capital.
