KSS’ designs revealed for Selhurst Park

This week, KSS Director Nick Marshall and Crystal Palace FC Chairman Steve Parish revealed our designs for the redevelopment of Selhurst Park to a packed room of journalists and special guests including Crystal Palace FC Manager Roy Hodgson and Club Ambassador Mark Bright.

Our designs for the new Main Stand pays homage to the club’s formative years taking cues from the hemispherical, barrel-vaulted arch and transverse section lines of the old iconic Crystal Palace Exhibition Hall on Sydenham Hill.

The five-storey ‘centrepiece’ incorporates the soaring wings of the Eagle reflecting the clubs proud history in a dramatic reimagination and redevelopment of the stadium.

As well as increasing the capacity from 26,000 to 34,000, the plans also include improved facilities for disabled supporters, premium hospitality services, entertainment facilities for more than 2,500 fans, a FIFA and UEFA compliant pitch, museum and new community facilities.

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish said, “We need a stadium that reflects who we are, how far we have come and where we want to go – a stadium that south London can be proud of, a home worthy of our incredible support and unique atmosphere and this great Premier League we represent. At the heart of it will be a new Crystal Palace.”

Crystal Palace Development Manager and Project Lead Guy Wickett said ‘’We are delighted to be working with KSS on this prestigious project and we will be working hard with the project team and Croydon Council to submit the planning application in January 2018.”

Our designs for the 13,500-seater Stand will not only maintain the essence of the famous Selhurst Park ground, but also retain and enhance one of the best atmospheres in English football.
