National Sports Centre

Project Overview

  • Project: National Sports Centre
  • Client: Greater London Authority
  • Status: Complete
  • Location: Crystal Palace

Increased engagement via a national centre.

We were commissioned to deliver a masterplan for Crystal Palace’s National Sports Centre, incorporating the listed park setting and including the challenging Joseph Paxton Axis through the site and around the edge of the proposed centre. The masterplan also included a new look at the central stadium, a new school, public realm and connections to the proposed exhibition hall.

Our intent was to deliver an improved destination feel to the park and the approach to the building, whilst at the same time preserving and enhancing the heritage setting.
