The Arts Village, Ropewalks, Liverpool

Situated in the Ropewalks Conservation Area this regeneration project comprises a mix of new and historic buildings to create a mixed-use development of studios, apartments, workshops and offices.


Client: Maritime Housing Group

Value: £3.6 million

Completed: September 2004

Location: Henry Street, Ropewalks, Liverpool


Following extensive consultation the project was developed to retain all the best buildings on the site and integrate some new build to complete an intimate urban courtyard space to act as the hub for the scheme. The resulting development is a successful blend of old and new, featuring historic warehouses converted to a mixture of uses, a commercial coach-house and adjacent lofts converted into the JMA offices and some new accommodation to replace the most derelict of the original properties which could not be saved.
