In the beginning of the 90’s, the Real Madrid Football Club established a large-scale renovation of its stadium. As time passed, in 2002, they proposed the modernization of the third circle of the East Side with a huge and light roof which covered the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
In 2002, the project “New East Side of the Bernabéu” dealt with the refurbishment of the rows of seats in the third circle of the East Side and a light roof which enclosed the stadium. A huge façade made up of metallic mesh gives uniformity and continuity to the East Side between the towers. These were reinforced to give structural support to the huge lattice roof. Further refurbishment is planned in order to create new areas with boxes to lodge all the installations of the new development.
The project was the culmination of several schemes that Real Madrid F.C. undertook to modernize its stadium. At the beginning of the 90’s, Estudio Lamela carried out a huge extension and refurbishment of the two far ends of the ground as well as the stand, which faces Paseo de la Castellana.
