Liverpool One, a partnership between Grosvenor Estates and Liverpool City Council, is a 42-acre, mixed-use, retail-led regeneration project in the centre of the City of Liverpool. Site 7 is located on Paradise Street between School Lane and College Lane and mediates between the new large-scale developments on Paradise Street to the west and the smaller scale historic environment around Bluecoat Chambers to the east.
A project with rich architectural qualities which suggests the possibility for a pluralistic architecture that can address social use while accommodating more luxurious sensations and experiences both spatially and materially.
The scheme is a mixed-use development consisting of retail, residential and a creche. It has primary retail frontages onto both Paradise Street
The residential accommodation faces Paradise Street on four floors above two retail levels and is grouped around a shared courtyard garden created on the roof of the retail accommodation. Access to the courtyard level is provided via a shared core from street level, and the courtyard provides access to secondary cores that serve individual flats. The garden and creche, raised above the public level, gives residents a calm focus above the buzz of the busy streets below, a haven in the city centre.
