Park Hood designed the new state of the art Premiership Football training ground for Southampton FC.

Completed in 2018, Park Hood secured Planning approval for the Multimillion pound sports pitch development Providing Landscape plans,  sections, desktop studies , landscape visuals, detailed planting masterplans, and design and access statements to support the works.

Visuals were provided in house for the Planning study. These provided scientific evidence of the look of the development ,allowed the owners to visualise the new proposal and were for the marketing of the scheme to the Players and Fans.

Mature trees were used to emphasise the arrivals and main avenues and routes through the site and when mixed with pthe paving design provided a coherent wayfinding framework to orientate visitors and reduce the need for signage clutter.
