Overview

The existing site comprises cleared infill land located off Oldham Place which is accessed via Roscoe Street, within Liverpool City Centre. The site is bound to the north by the six-storey rear extension of the Grade II Listed ‘Young Mens Christian Association Building’, and borders an existing substation and derelict building to the east. Along the southern boundary runs Oldham Place and to the west the Site borders the Renshaw Hall building and associated open land.

Our proposal includes the erection of an 8-storey building comprising 93 self-contained student units totalling 210 student bedrooms. 

The external design is predominantly red brick to reflect the surrounding buildings, with a bold integration of various boxes to create a more playful, dynamic aesthetic and break up the large elevations.

The large central feature of the design includes a central box that extrudes out and engages with the public square. A curtain wall system is integrated into this aspect.  A dark grey tile design is proposed for ground floor aspects whilst a lighter grey panel system is utilised on the top floor.

Although the fenestration exudes order, the differing window styles reflect the flexible approach to the scheme.
