Architectural firm Pattern has been brought in to help design Everton FC’s new stadium alongside Meis Architects.
The new stadium is set to be built on semi-derelict dockland at Bramley-Moore Dock in North Liverpool.
Sports specialist Pattern has been working on the Qatar World Cup and designed venues for this month’s Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru.
Sheppard Robson had been appointed earlier in the process to advise Meis on the UK planning system and building regulations. The firm is not working on the project any more.
The new stadium design is made up of four distinctive stands including a large steep home stand to the south that will house 13,000 Evertonians on matchdays.
Supporters will be as close to the action as regulations permit as the club seeks to capture and amplify the intensity and intimacy of Goodison Park in this modern arena.
The design of both North and South stand lower tiers will make it easy to adopt rail seating and, should legislation change in the future, they could also be converted into areas for safe standing offering supporters optionality and flexibility.
The concepts show a stunning brick, steel and glass design which takes its inspiration from the historic maritime and warehouse buildings nearby.
