Make and Martha Schwartz join Spurs stadium team
Make and Martha Schwartz Landscape Architects have been named as part of the team delivering Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.
The two practices have teamed up with stadium specialist KSS Architects and engineer Buro Happold to come up with proposals for a new 60,000-seat stadium.
Make has been approached to ‘knit’ the new stadium into the surrounding context and, it is understood, will design 500 new homes as part of the development.
Martha Schwartz will be asked to look at the public realm on the scheme.
Tottenham has decided to take a novel approach to moving into its new home, that will span over four stages. The club will start construction on its new stadium just to the north of the existing ground while still playing at full capacity at White Hart Lane.
At the close of the season, the existing North Stand will be demolished and a new pitch laid at the new stadium ready for the new season.
The club will play for one season in the part-completed new stadium while the remainder of the existing stadium is demolished.
At the end of the second season, the old ground will be completely demolished.
Tottenham Hotspur is currently running public consultations on the plans to hear fans’ and local residents’ views.
