A facility built to inspire needs an inspirational designer and this is precisely the reason why the Fenland Trust has commissioned one of the world’s most talented architects to visualise Yaxley’s Festival Park building.
The new community hub and sports facility at Middleton’s Road Recreation Ground is just one of the projects in development by the Yaxley-based charitable organisation who are working on a multi-strand long term plan to develop sport, education, tourism, heritage and the arts in and around Yaxley.
Award winning architect Andrea Morgante, owner of London based design practice Shiro Studio has completed projects for Ferrari, Alessi, M&C Saatchi, Peroni, D-Shape, Agape, Poltrona Frau, Seiko Japan and Electa. In 2012 Andrea completed the construction of the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Italy. More recently Andrea’s Shiro Studio won the Great Fen Visitor Centre RIBA architectural design open competition from more than 200 anonymous entries.
It is therefore with great excitement that we look forward to welcoming Andrea to Yaxley later this month to meet our growing list of partners and establish a clear idea of exactly what this new beating heart for the village will look like.
Posters, flyers and information packs will be available from next month and we will be presenting locally with our partners at dates and multiple venues to be confirmed.
