The brief was to design an integrated community and leisure facility which would act as a catalyst for the town’s economic growth, social improvement and enhanced wellbeing.
Accommodation includes a 25m swimming pool with spectator seating, studio pool, beauty treatment spa, flexible six court sports hall, two multi purpose studios, cycling studio, gym with 80 fitness stations and a soft play area. Each finished to the highest standard befitting of an exclusive fitness club.
The centre is also the now the home for Ashington library, spread over two floors with an extensive range of books and digital resources.
A simple restrained material palette is used throughout.
