Union North Architects: Greenland Street, Liverpool

Union North Architects: Greenland Street, Liverpool

In the up-and-coming Baltic Triangle warehouse district, just south of Liverpool’s city centre, sits the A Foundation’s new gallery. The visual-arts charity commissioned Union North to transform three former industrial buildings into a gallery with semi-permanent access, circulation, and service facilities. A trapezoidal portal, lined with felt, telescopes the industrial-sized entrance down to a door on a more human scale. The tactile and sound-absorbent felt creates space between the industrial and cultural uses represented by the two doorways. Inside, white partitions and brightly coloured plastic furniture contrast with the rough brickwork of the existing building.
