Architectural Design of Urban Building in Liverpool
This buildings architecture will provide 93 apartments and commercial space on the ground floor (street level), designed by Alison Brooks Architects. The design follows the Liverpool’s gothic architectural tradition, will cluster around an existing bridal shop, blending with the existing Wedding Shop. This three urban buildings are due for finishing point in 2016. Design for the Tribeca development located on the corner of Great George Street and St James Street, UK.
Property Developer Urban Splash invited four architects to work with them on the project: Liverpool’s shedkm, London based Alison Brooks Architects, Riches Hawley Mikhail, and Austrian practice querkraft. The site forms three distinct triangles, so Urban Splash put the phrase together ‘Triangles Beneath Cathedral’ to create Tri-be-ca, Tribeca. ABA’s scheme has been conceived as a contemporary addition to the sandstone architecture of Liverpool, a 21st century gothic. The team were inspired by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s nearby Anglican Cathedral, consecrated in 1924, and the city’s monumental stone civic buildings. Their architecture expresses solidity and permanence qualities which ABA feel are essential for new urban neighbourhoods. The faceted forms of ABA’s three buildings and their elongated fenestration is intended to relate to both the Gothic articulation of the Wedding Shop on the site, as well as the dramatic verticality of the nearby Cathedral. Within the windows are vertical strips of coloured glass reminiscent of the beautiful stained glass windows that enliven the sandstone interior of St George’s.
