Inspire | Chorley Youth Zone

HB Architects are delighted to be working again with OnSide to create their latest Youth Zone. Working along side HH Smith & Sons, it is fantastic to work with such a experienced contractor to deliver a project.

The project forms part of the OnSide network of youth zones in providing young people aged between 8-19 years with a purpose built facility to enjoy while raising their aspirations and confidence.

The site is located on a high profile corner close to Chorley town centre. The design responds to the shape of site and the corner aspect.

In keeping with the OnSide model, internally the  design features; an exciting open plan recreation area at the heart of the facility, surrounded by high spec activity spaces, including; a music room,  climbing wall, multi-use sports hall, fitness suite, martial arts suite, performing arts studio, inclusion room, girls room, training room and mentoring kitchen. The design utilises existing cellars to create a lower ground floor internal kick pitch, which will be a unique feature of this facility.
