Corstorphine + Wright lands Royal Liver job

Royal Liver Building in Liverpool
  • Comment

Corstorphine + Wright has been selected to oversee the redevelopment of Merseyside’s iconic and Grade I-listed Royal Liver Building – one of Liverpool’s famous Three Graces

The practice, which has nine offices around the UK including a base in Manchester, said its masterplan would breathe new life into the 106-year-old landmark on the Liverpool waterfront.

Designed by Walter Aubrey Thomas to accommodate 6,000 employees of the Royal Liver Group, the 16-storey building was the tallest in Europe when it opened in 1911.

It was bought by Corestate Capital Holding last year and currently provides office space. Corstorphine + Wright plans to open up parts of the building to visitors.

Ed Baverstock, architect director at the practice, described the task as ‘an enormous privilege’.

‘Our masterplan will transform the Royal Liver Building it into a world-leading public space while celebrating its rich history, beauty and location,’ he said.

‘We have a wealth of experience in the respectful conservation and sensitive revival of historic buildings across the UK and are honoured to play our part as custodians of this magnificent Grade I-listed property.’

Corstorphine + Wright will be supported by independent heritage buildings adviser Peter DeFigueiredo and the CBRE specialist planning team.
