Houchin fields is a new leisure park located in Ashford. The park is designed primarily for sports and leisure purposes with a wide variety of sports facilities designed to international completion standards.
The site comprises, a beach volley ball centre, a sports hall (to Sport England standards), a trampoline centre, golf centre and full size 4G sports pitch. The site also has shops, a hotel and a pub restaurant to service the sports buildings.
The variety of buildings with both ports and leisure facilities provides for many varied uses at different times of the day for the people of Ashford and also for wider national and international usage.
The park is designed to have an overarching architectural theme to differentiate itself from most ‘out of town’ leisure parks. The buildings are varied in their scale and typology, with consistent timber detailing to tie all of the structures together as part of a larger family of buildings. The distinctive and unified architectural treatment is part of the wider site branding strategy.
