Twickenham Stadium’s new East Stand officially opens
Last Saturday, Twickenham’s new East Stand officially opened its doors as it played host to the first of the Quilter Internationals against South Africa resulting in a stunning 12-11 victory for England.
KSS were lead designers and architects for the East Stand development working with Wildfire London on the interior design concept and delivery. The expansion offers six floors of stylish event space, including eight brand new facilities delivering a bespoke hospitality experience for the fans.
The new spaces at Twickenham Stadium – the home of England Rugby – include The Gate, The Union Ale House, The Lock 4, The Lock 5, The Clubhouse, The East Wing and British Airways Rose Garden.
On Levels 1 and 2, The Gate offers a contemporary and authentic chophouse style restaurant incorporating low lighting to create a dark and moody atmosphere. The space delivers a variety of dining styles and includes a wine room and meat display. The Level 1 Union Ale House provides the classic pub experience for Debenture holders, ideal for informal celebrations, drinks receptions and parties.
On Level 3, the Lock 4 and 5 includes a large spacious bar providing the perfect environment for gala dinners and award ceremonies. Both event spaces have impeccable views of the world famous Twickenham pitch and central London skyline.
On Level 4, The Clubhouse consists of a formal restaurant for Debenture holders with touches of warm wood, leather and metallic finishes adding an authentic feel and ambience. The Clubhouse Bar & Kitchen provides a spacious exhibition area in a trendy and modern design.
The East Wing is the premium space within the East Stand on Level 4a, featuring four terraces along the stadium bowl with fantastic pitch views. The East Wing has been designed with the same ethos as a private members’ club, offering luxurious surroundings in the form of a restaurant, private dining areas and an informal relaxed lounge environment.
The British Airways Rose Garden is the new elegant roof terrace on Level 5 offering street food dining and includes a built-in pizza oven and rotisserie. The open areas bring an ‘outdoors feel’ to the space in a fun and immersive experience.
The East Stand development has raised the bar in terms of the offer at Twickenham Stadium delivering the finest matchday and non-match day hospitality experience for the fans, guests and visitors to enjoy.
