ETFE inflated cushion structures

Four sculptural ETFE inflated cushion structures, believed to be the largest elliptical structured of their kind.

The design was conceived by Leonard Design Architects and was fully detailed, engineered, manufactured and installed by Fabric Architecture.

The delicate tapered masts support two 7 metre diameter and two 8 metre diameter over sailing twin skinned ETFE cushions and are lit with a continuous LED light.

The structures are supported on a suspended deck. The services and inflation tubes are hidden in internal ducts in the steel frames and through the deck.


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.
