Top architects create Beacon of hope

One of the country’s top architects has been chosen to create an iconic design for the Beacon of Light. FaulknerBrowns, are based in the northeast but have a worldwide reputation for design.

The Beacon of Light will be a vibrant and exciting education and sports facility and the first of its kind in the UK and the architectural practice aims to create a building that will both inspire and motivate.

Partner Michael Hall explained: “We are absolutely delighted to be involved in this exciting project. It will not only be a new landmark for the north east but provide an innovative new model for the integration of sport, health and education throughout the UK and Europe.”

“The location for the proposed Beacon of Light is on a major gateway site next to the Stadium of Light and required an inventive design to maximise the opportunity.”

FaulknerBrowns have gained a national and international reputation for the design of complex leisure destinations and developments, which have continually redefined the building type for nearly fifty years. Their buildings are regarded by many people, but sports bodies in particular, as examples of best practice.

Its design approach for the Beacon of Light was to stack the indoor football zone on the roof of the education and training facilities. The lightweight choice of materials for the Beacon also means it can be illuminated at night – making it a Beacon of hope visible across the city.

The shape of the building is a simple but striking cube.

On entering the building on the first floor, users will be presented with a busy street along which the various activities within the building will interconnect.

Inspirational zones for education, world of work, health and wellbeing and sport and play will be clearly earmarked and enjoy excellent views into the sports arena.

Michael Hall, FaulknerBrowns partner

Former Sunderland AFC Chairman and Chair of Trustees of the Foundation of Light, Sir Bob Murray CBE added: “I have no doubt the Beacon of Light will become a building of national importance and international reputation. The building will be leading edge and epitomises the pioneering approach and work of the Foundation.

“The Beacon will make a difference by involving, inspiring and educating a generation of young people and their families. It will touch the lives of thousands of people every week and have a far-reaching impact in the region and beyond.

“FaulknerBrowns have an eminent name and outstanding track record, so we are delighted to have such a strong a renowned team working with us to deliver our vision and to create something very unique and special in the region.”
