Heatherwick Studio – the architects behind the London 2012 Olympic cauldron – have been commissioned by Fulham Football Club to design a new stand.

Led by Thomas Heatherwick, the studio will take on the club’s Riverside Stand project – the stand adjacent to the River Thames – which will see the capacity of Fulham’s Craven Cottage ground increase to 30,000-seater.

The project has also incorporated the development of a ‘Riverwalk’ in the nearby Bishop’s Park to “considerably enhance the locality every day of the year”.

Fulham had secured planning permission for the stand and will release a full timescale for the development following the design stage.

The Championship club’s owner Shahid Khan – also the owner of National Football League (NFL) franchise Jacksonville Jaguars – said Heatherwick would “bring to life” a project the “neighbourhood and Fulham community deserve”.

“The Riverside Stand project required patience and diligence, and ultimately a designer who understands the history of London, the Thames and, of course, Fulham,” said Khan. “Thomas Heatherwick is that designer.”
