The project develops a residential alternative to Liverpool that occupies the Birkenhead waterfront, transforming an under-used area into an energetic location. The arrangement establishes visual connections with the historic townscape of Birkenhead as well as Liverpool’s waterfront. It aims to promote a walkable city by creating a green park behind the waterfront and achieving strong connections with the public transport network. The park becomes the spine of the project, whilst the residential developments contribute to a higher density of the urban fabric. Between the two residential zones, the commercial/cultural hub provides the office spaces and cafes/restaurants with a link to the historic ferry terminal that itself becomes a focal point of the design.
