Wilkinson Eyre cleared for £50m Lord’s plans

Wilkinson Eyre's just-approved proposals for Lord's Compton and Edrich stands

Redevelopment of Compton and Edrich stands will boost capacity by 2,500

Wilkinson Eyre-designed proposals for the next phase of the redevelopment of Lord’s cricket ground have been approved by Westminster city council.

The practice’s £50m scheme to replace the Compton and Edrich stands at the Marylebone venue will surround Future Systems’ Stirling Prize-winning Media Centre and boost Lord’s capacity by around 2,500 to 31,000.

Marylebone Cricket Club said Wilkinson Eyre’s designs for the stands’ redevelopment – which forms the second phase of a two-decade masterplan for the home of cricket – would complement the ground’s “unique setting” and add a new “distinctive architectural appearance”.
