NEW RENDERINGS OF REDESIGNED CHELSEA FOOTBALL CLUB STADIUM UNVEILED

Architects from Herzog & de Meuron have revealed their final design of a new £500 million stadium for Chelsea Football Club, featuring slender brick ribs – inspired by Victorian-era brick architecture typical for the local buildings in Fulham and  Chelsea. The Swiss firm is working along with London architecture firm Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands on the reconstruction of the 41,837-seat Stamford Bridge stadium. The main aim of the project is to increase spectator capacity to 60,000. The scale of the redevelopment could cause the Blues to have to relocate to a temporary stadium for as long as three seasons. Wembley and Twickenham are just two of the possible venues which could cater to Chelsea’s needs.
