Located in the English county of Kent, the proposed ‘Folkestone Sports Park’ totals approximately 1,000 square metres and will form an integral part of the region’s ongoing regeneration.
Adding to Folkestone’s growing urban sports culture, the centre will accommodate a variety of popular activities including skateboarding and climbing, with the future potential to provide a boxing club.
Designed to engage with both novice and experienced individuals, the complex includes four storeys above ground, with a roof terrace overlooking the surrounding neighborhood. The building features a transparent skin, revealing the activity within, while two undulating floor-plates create a series of skateable bowls, whose sculptural form is made visible from below.
The proposals were announced by the Roger de Haan Charitable Trust, with public consultations now set to take place.
