The £35m landmark development for Liverpool City Council will deliver approximately 160,000ft2 of state-of-the-art space, with half used as the new headquarters for RCP North. The project captures the changing nature of workplaces, with wellness in mind and body at the centre of the design's inspiration. The scheme explores the values of wellbeing and biophilia, with large, open-air spaces and flexible floorplates encouraging collaborative working between RCP fellows and members across the North. A Level 12 sky garden provides staff with an elevated view across the city.
The building has been designed to ensure ease of access to the public. A simple orthogonal grid will divide the area and ensure that spaces can be organised and reconfigured to suit the evolving needs of all building users – offering occupants real flexibility and choice.
The project aims to create a new chapter in the history of the RCP, evolving its approach to the workplace and increasing the ability to reach and communicate knowledge and expertise to the wider public.
