Chelsea Football Club has submitted an application to redevelop its stadium, Stamford Bridge. Keen to build upon its status as a community club Chelsea FC have opened up design elements of the redevelopment to its supporters. A competition has recently closed to design gates for the Stamford Bridge itself, which crosses the West London Railway and links the Fulham Road to the East Stand.

With a few Chelsea supporters in the Oakleigh Manor team we were keen to utilise our gate design specialities and submit a design of our own.

The brief…

The design of the Gates of Stamford Bridge must be inspired by the following contexts:

1)           Club identity

2)           Club heritage

3)           Design of proposed stadium façade

4)           Historic location of and on Stamford Bridge itself

5)           Surrounding conservation areas

6)           Borough boundary

7)           London landmarks (especially bridges and gates)

 

The Winners Gate

The Winners Gate

 

Sticking close to the brief the Oakleigh manor Design Team have created   this unique gate called ‘The Winners Gate’. Its buttresses directly reflect the beautiful new stadium façade, and look Colloseum like. Steel panels between the buttresses will convey the history of the club and London. The unique sliding mechanism will allow the buttresses to fold away and allow supporters to enter the site. The Chelsea Football Club badge is prominently featured in the ground and creates a focal point.
