AJ exclusive: final permanent Olympic venue revealed

The AJ can exclusively reveal the designs for the last permanent venue on the Olympic Park, Stanton Williams Architects-designed Eton Manor

Situated on the northern end of the park, it will act as a training venue during the London 2012 Games and host the wheelchair tennis for the Paralympic Games.

After the Games, Eton Manor, which won planning approval earlier this week, will be converted into a permanent hockey and tennis centre.

CABE has called the designs ‘promising’ and praised the ‘strong legacy’ focus.

CABE’s design review comments

We support the strong Legacy focus for Eton Manor and have been impressed by the project’s design development throughout our period of review. In relation to the current planning submission for the site in Olympic mode we believe the site diagram and architecture of the main sports centre are promising. We also support the more open landscape treatment for the southwest corner of the site, which should ensure views of the main Olympic Park to the south
