Ryder's Liverpool Science Park Innovation Centre opens doors

Ryder Architecture has completed this £7m innovation centre next to Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral

An extension to an innovation centre designed by Falconer Chester Hall at the Liverpool Science Park, the 3750m² building sits in below Frederick Gibberd’s Grade II*-listed cathedral, known locally as ‘Paddy’s Wigwam.

The wing, which is connected to the existing building by a double decker bridge, has commercial laboratory space on the ground and first floor with flexible office space on the upper two storeys.

Ryder’s Liverpool office has moved into the building they designed, taking up space third floor overlooking the Cathedral.


Architect’s view

Gareth Callen, director, Ryder Architecture

‘We designed the new wing of ic1 to have an identity of its own whilst complimenting the existing building and being sensitive to the adjacent Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.

‘This crisp new addition to the site also has to define the southern edge of the urban park between the Cathedral, John Moores University Design Academy and ic2.’
