Project Name: Gostins Building
Sector: Hotel & Residential
Construction Value: £13.5m
Client: Niboco Ltd
Description: The conversion of an historic warehouse building in Liverpool’s City Centre. We were tasked with converting the existing structure to a hotel, which contained 154 rooms and to propose a roof extension that would complement the building below.
The design is a deconstruction of the existing structure in an effort to break down its mass and add visual interest for the varying viewpoints back toward the site, particularly from the Albert Dock.
The apparently chaotic design takes cues from the proportions of the existing elevations and is finished in a highly reflective bronze coloured aluminium cladding, which will be a talking point for years to come!
