New stadium designs revealed for Cambridge Utd

This month, League Two side Cambridge United FC unveiled plans for a new 12,000-seat stadium.

KSS have been working with the football club to develop a new stadium concept which will form a key part and gateway project to a wider strategic plan for a new hub East of Cambridge.

Our brief was to design an ambitious, sustainable stadium to match the club’s multi-use aspirations of hosting football, concerts, conferences and community activities, in addition to providing a dynamic new home for the Club.

Our designs are based on the intricate and detailed Cambridge vernacular with the stadium inset into the landscape, finessing the boundary between architecture and the environment and important local ecology.

The use of timber structure and façade, along with PVs on the roof and passive/operational strategies will ensure a holistic approach to sustainable design. The transparent facade will allow the stadium to dramatically glow at night, representing the club’s colours and becoming a beacon for New East Cambridge.
