Living brick construction was implemented as a standalone business to enable the construction / conversion of both residential buildings and hotels within the city centre. With an in-house team to include architects, project managers and quantity surveyor’s we can both design and manage projects providing an end to end solution.
Was spent on a period conversion of a grade two listed row of Georgian terrace properties into twenty beautiful on a add two bedroom apartments. Resplendently restored with sympathetic materials and a period palette the resultant works were commended by not only local architects but planners also with regards to detailing and finish.
We undertook the construction of a new build development of circa thirty five thousand square feet to house forty seven one and two bedroom apartments. With undercroft parking the buildings ground floor houses our companies office space for over twenty five staff running the operational arm of Town hotels. The building was primarily retained for the companies serviced accommodation offering with the hospitality arm being incorporated in the same year.
Works began on a listed period building in the Ropewalks area for conversion to a distinctive group accommodation offering fitting the companies unique, developing design blueprint. The quirky composition ingeniously melded the buildings original envelope within a hip, flexible layout housing groups of up to sixteen people. Colours clashed with materials, big screens and banquet seating, the finished product has been a commercial success.
wo projects were undertaken simultaneously the first being a new build hotel project on Duke Street encompassing thirty one ergonomically designed rooms within a classically designed building giving a nod to the existing architecture. The second project is a partial conversion of an existing commercial building (within the burgeoning Baltic triangle area) to a fifty six bedroom hotel housing a traditional pub, swanky laid back Brasserie and roof top bar.
With works continuing unabated on both projects as a company we agreed terms to acquire a unique listed building on Hanover Street for conversion to a luxurious five star hotel. The plans were part of the wider business plan for Town hotels to include group, serviced, boutique, ergo and luxury within one brand. Whilst works have been seriously impeded by the current climate as a company we have managed to continue constructions works whilst managing the operational difficulties within our hospitality offering.
he year has began with the completion of the city’s hippest ergonomically designed hotels located on Duke street. A tech fest marketed directly at upwardly mobile hipsters, the building is opening on the 17th in line with guidelines. We are also on target to open phase one of the Baltic Hotel a stunning conversion housing the first thirty six of fifty six suites, with dramatically designed rooms the hotel is bringing London to Liverpool in terms of hip elegance.
“Duke Street Boutique Hotel offers contemporary, hip designs which are very much in keeping with the feel of the Baltic and Ropewalks areas of Liverpool. They will be pitched to UK and European visitors to the city looking for stylish but uncomplicated accommodation. They’re going to be incredibly cool places to stay.
The Baltic will be a destination in its own right with food and drink facilities which will compliment the location. The development will feature many of the building’s original features with a modern twist.”
