A mini-masterplan for the redevelopment of part of the grounds on the western edge of The All England Lawn Tennis Club's site in Wimbledon
The Media Development Project allows the AELTC to provide the highest standards of facilities for the thousands of international media covering The Championships.
The mini-masterplan defines a series of related projects as part of the wider site masterplan.
Out concept transforms back of house areas into world class media facilities.
Functions currently located in other areas of the site are relocated and improved. This in turn unlocks the potential of other buildings on the site, such as the adjacent Millennium Building.
The mini-masterplan cleverly knits together a complex area of the site connecting the new buildings to a variety of external and internal levels. A series of inside and outside interview areas are created.
The proposals convert an existing yard previously used for Broadcast vehicles into the new Media Pavilion - a world-class interview facility with flexible editing and production rooms beneath. You can read more about the Media Pavilion here.
Opposite the Media Pavilion, the new Technology Services Room provides a flexible and sustainable home for the expanding technical and IT services The Championships demand. You can read more about the TSR here.
The modification of the compound around the site entrance known as Gate 20 supports the needs of Broadcasters and reduces the risk of queuing on the public street. Outside of The Championships, the area provides dedicated space for a planting nursery.
