Laurel and Laburnum, Liverpool
Project Name: Laurel and Laburnum
Type: Housing
Client: The Riverside Group
Location: Liverpool
A high-quality social housing scheme that sensitively responds to its context whilst creating its own distinctive sense of place. The scheme provides visual and pedestrian connections through the local area and knits two sides of a physically fragmented community back together.

The proposal includes a mix of one, two, three and four bedroom units designed as a series of Character Areas – The Courtyard, the Street and Laburnum. The form, massing and layout of each character area responds to its immediate context but with the contemporary use of traditional materials, robust detailing and a consistent architectural character running through the scheme resulting in a cohesive whole.

In addition to a variety of high-quality two and three storey house types, the proposal contains light and airy dual-aspect own-front door apartments. The design of the apartments are in-keeping with the scale and character of the wider development but they provide an alternate house-type - diversifying the overall housing offer.
