EPR romps home in Galway - images

  • Comment
London-based EPR Architects has won the race to design the new grandstand at Galway's Ballybrit Racecourse.

The Eu15 million (£10.3 million) scheme, which will sit in the existing West Stand's footprint, aims to maintain the course's reputation for inclusiveness by allowing unrestricted access for 6,000 race-goers.

EPR claimed that the scheme would maintain a simplicity of design. The practice says that this is achieved by keeping levels simple and avoiding steps where possible.

The western end of the new stand will form the focus of the building, with panoramic views across the track from a new restaurant. The practice claims that this 'completes the composition and gives a defined end to the stand'.

The development will also include new conferencing and exhibition facilities, which will aim to create a revenue stream for the course.
