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”.
