City Lofts Phase 1 Princes Dock Liverpool
This important site at the entrance to the Princes Dock redevelopment required a residential structure of significant height. The design addressed this sensitive issue by adopting an appropriate but asymmetrical massing, allowing the creation of a higher 20 storey element adjacent to the site entrance, twinned with a lower 10 storey block further along the eastern edge of the dock via a seven storey link. The development offers a consistent language to all elevations. With clear expression of the structural grid via the confident use of concrete panels, they frame generously proportioned glazed bays offering panoramic views of the surrounding areas from within the apartments.
