Howells bags sporting double

  • Comment

Glenn Howells Architects (GHA) has landed the project to redevelop Newbury Racecourse as well as the £11 million overhaul of Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club

The practice is to work with David Wilson Holmes on the scheme which includes 1,500 new homes a 120-bed hotel and enhanced racing facilities. Earlier proposals for the site came in for heavy criticism from CABE which branded plans by Terence O’Rourke ‘too fragmented’ and ‘lacked an appropriate vision’.

Meanwhile GHA has won the competition for the £11 million revamp of Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club - one of the UK’s most prestigious racquet and leisure facilities. T

The scheme includes six new indoor tennis courts, a gym, redeveloped clubhouse facilities and a new showcase centre court. 

Designs are currently being developed for a planning submission later in 2010.

Helen Newman, lead architect at Glenn Howells Architects, said: ‘Not only is this a once in a lifetime opportunity to provide members and the local community with the very best sporting and social facilities at one of Birmingham’s most prestigious venues, but also to establish the Club’s reputation as a prominent international tournament venue for generations to come.’
