Colourcrete project in Payers Park, Folkestone
Payers Park, designed by urban design specialists muf architecture/art, provides a place to play, exercise and relax for Folkestone’s residents, visitors and shoppers. The brief was to create a new focal point for the community that would act as a safe access link through the town centre.Set in a steep sloping valley side, Payers Park required the use of heavy building materials with the structural capabilities to cope with the complexities of the site. Colour and aesthetic were important considerations in developing its exposed structures, which needed to closely match local clays and sandstones in the town, such as Greensand and Gault clay.
