Land Rover BAR America's Cup HQ

Home to Ben Ainslie Racing and built to BREEAM excellent standards; a purpose-built facility housing all of the team's activities from design to sailing, sports science to marketing - a showcase for sport, innovation, technology and sustainability in the heart of Portsmouth.

Using modern methods of construction - and with technologies incorporated into the design to seek carbon neutral credentials - the 27m tall, 2670sq.m building brings together the three key functions of boat design and team training, boat building, and a Tech Deck and Education Centre.  HGP Architects' design delivers each unique function of the building in a hierarchy of cascading layers linked together through a central light well that connects everyone to the heart of the team and the boat.

"As a company, our intent has always been to bring together the best of British talent and initiative.  HGP have been integral to that endeavor.   Their design and technical experience has delivered a platform under demanding conditions that allows us to fulfill that venture and provided us with a base that we are proud to call home."                                                               Sir Ben Ainslie                                                          Team Principal, Land Rover BAR
