Union North bags ‘Baltic’ sheds job

  • Comment

Union North Architects has landed a £1.9 million project to refurbish the ‘Jordan Street Tin Sheds’ in the Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool

Funded by North West Development Agency and European Regional Development Fund, the project for community business Baltic Creative aims to ‘reinvent’ the structures as creative and digital workspaces.

With a series of ‘selective and purposeful interventions’ the studio hopes to focus on the ‘unflattered simplicity’ of the tin sheds. Revenue from on-site renewable sources would also reduce costs and create a ‘carbon neutral’ environment.

Miles Falkingham of Union North said: ‘It is not enough to deliver functional space at the market price, the proposal must offer something incontestable and it must excite and seduce people.

‘It must create a desire to associate and create “credibility by proxy” for end users. We propose to populate the Tin Sheds with a flexible community that generates a radical atmosphere and delivers a natural environment for pioneering “Creatives”.’

Anna Heyes of Baltic Creative added: ‘Union North demonstrated a deep understanding of the area and had a vision for the next phase of the Baltic Creative scheme that excited us. We’re looking forward to developing these ideas with the design team with the aim of making a start onsite in the next few months.’
