Ascot’s £200-million redevelopment took place between September 2004 and June 2006. Rod Sheard, Senior Principal of HOK Sport Architecture, led the team that designed the new Grandstand, with the intention of making it the best racecourse in the world.

Reflecting the brow of the hill on which it sits, the Grandstand curves down from a central high point towards each end, blending in with the surrounding landscape.
