KSS working on No.1 Court at Wimbledon

KSS are proud to announce our appointment this year by The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) to provide a full range of architectural and design services for the redevelopment of the No.1 Court at Wimbledon. The No.1 Court upgrades will include the construction of a new fixed and bespoke retractable roof providing cover to the entire playing surface allowing for uninterrupted play throughout The Championships.

The reconfigured No.1 Court includes the improvement of public facilities, 15 new hospitality suites on a completely remodelled level, catering facilities, commentary boxes and improved seating bringing the overall capacity to over 12,000 seats. The redevelopment will also provide the backdrop to a major new landscaped entrance plaza, whilst also providing spectacular views over the outer courts which is part of a wider Master Plan at Wimbledon.

KSS will be progressing the designs up to construction which will be phased after this year’s Championships over a four-year period and is scheduled to be completed in 2019. The new designs will conserve Wimbledon’s unique and special heritage, enhancing the environment and spectator experience providing an exciting future for the AELTC retaining its status as the premier Grand Slam event in world tennis.
