An Art Deco airport terminal and two hangars are to be turned into a four-star hotel, conference centre and sports arena by Falconer Chester Architects.

The £22 million project in Liverpool will see the semi-derelict terminal - designed in 1933 by Sir A J Cobham and Partners - become the 88-bedroom Swallow Hotel. One of the hangars will contain a swimming pool, squash courts and a bar, the other a 6000-seat arena. The overhaul will be financed by Neptune Developments and Speke Garston Development. A planning application will be submitted in a month.

Falconer Chester Architects is also designing two 2000m2 offices, at a total cost of £35 million, as part of the city's £90 million Queen Square project.
