A renovated and redeveloped sheltered housing scheme with new communal facilities for Liverpool Mutual Homes.
Client: Liverpool Mutual Homes
Value: £1.3 million
Completed: August 2016
Location: Breckfield Road, Everton
This was formerly an untidy collection of buildings with their backs, fortress-like, on their surroundings overlooking a dark and congested courtyard. The apartments at Shallcross Court now look across a large south-facing communal garden in the centre of the scheme.
The previously separate blocks have been knitted together by internal corridors that connect to a striking main entrance building with a range of facilities for the use of the residents. Framed by mature trees with views out across the main road, the eye-catching new building stands out as a new landmark in the local area.
