Alexandra Tower Princes Dock Liverpool
This site provided an opportunity to create a landmark building marking the entrance to Princes Dock from the River Mersey and forming a visual link to the dock redevelopment area from Liverpool City Centre and Wirral Peninsular. The building responds to this opportunity with its significant height, dynamic design and contemporary use of materials. The tower is a cluster of vertical elements. Vertical glass shafts extend at each end of the building contrasting with a singular massing element in the centre. The east and west elevations are wrapped by two continuously glazed full facades offering extraordinary views over the river and city.
