See You Then bar, Cheltenham

Over the last 4 years and as part of a £45m project to build a new grandstand at Cheltenham Racecourse, Fabric Architecture have worked with Roberts Limbrick to design a fully-integrated tensile fabric canopy for the new “See You Then” Bar.

The company, contracted to Kier Construction, will complete phase 1 (including the integrated tensile fabric canopy) this September in time for the 2014-15 race season. The project is part of an overall master scheme for the racecourse, which as a whole, is one of Kier’s largest ever projects in the South West region. See You Then will hold prime position overlooking the parade ring and will be an ongoing high-quality catering destination for special events at the racecourse.


A bespoke hyper system for elegant open-air dining preserving views of the course and allowing customers continued enjoyment of the races.

A 240sqm wave-shaped fabric ceiling was designed to create a smooth and undulating surface with atmospheric up-lighters.
