Nightingale opens doorway to Lutyens crypt

  • Comment

Nightingale Associates has completed this £4 million entrance to the Lutyens crypt below Liverpool’s Catholic cathedral

The new pavilion allows public access for the first time to the vaults below Frederick Gibberd’s 1967 Cathedral of Christ the King’s Crypt.

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)-compliant scheme is being hailed as ‘the first major addition’ to the building, known as Paddy’s Wigwam, since it was built and completes a larger £8-million renovation programme.

The crypt is the only part of Edwin Lutyens’ original designs for a huge 150m-tall cathedral, never to be realised. It recently housed the RIBA’s Le Corbusier – The Art of Architecture show, which has now moved to the Barbican in London.
