Inspire | Chorley Youth Zone
HB Architects are delighted to be working again with OnSide to create their latest Youth Zone.
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.
