Highlight Leisure Centre

Project Overview

  • Project: Highlight Leisure Centre
  • Client: Hartlepool Borough Council
  • Status: Live
  • Location: Hartlepool

An exciting new destination leisure scheme.

The scheme represents the council’s significant commitment to regeneration and revitalisation within the borough. Our design team have worked closely with the Council and stakeholders to not only come up with an eye-catching and unique building that makes the most of its waterfront location, but to develop a bespoke, flexible facility mix which will meet the needs of a variety of different user groups.

Drawing on local history and culture, the design inspiration behind the scheme’s strong linear lines have been inspired by the railway tracks which ran from local timber and coal yards into the former dockland site during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The building grows in height from west to east and offers incredible views of the wider waterfront site, marina and sea.
