Flemington Racecourse stand complete

Written by:

Victoria Racing Club’s new $128-million state-of-the-art Club Stand at Flemington Racecourse has achieved completion.

Designed by leading Australian architecture and interior design practice, Bates Smart, the five-level Club Stand was built by Multiplex on schedule, in time for the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Representing the 10th grandstand to be built at Flemington since 1865, the new Club Stand sets a new benchmark for racecourse facilities.

Bates Smart director Kristen Whittle, who led the design team, says the elegant design took inspiration from Flemington’s iconic rose garden beds. The curvilinear form of the build with operable glass facades creates an immersive experience for members who will have impressive views as well as a genuine theatre-like experience of the racetrack.

Bates Smart director of Interior Design Jeff Copolov says the Club Stand celebrates the rich history and character of Flemington Racecourse with sweeping 360-degree views of the Mounting Yard, Race Track, Members Lawn, Parade Ring, Betting Ring and Winning Post.
