Chancery House

Falconer Chester Hall’s design for the Grade II listed Chancery House on Paradise Street, Liverpool, will convert the former Gordon Smith Institute for Seamen into 37 residential apartments together witha restaurant and café/delicatessen.

The project, for Chancery House LLP, will consist of a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments situated over 900 sq m of commercial space on the ground and mezzanine level with a two-storey rooftop extension and a new six-storey link building.

The design of the extension and new building, together with the colour palette and cladding materials chosen, will reflect the existing collection of distinctive buildings in the location.

The report to Liverpool City Council’s Planning committee noted `the scheme represents a sensitive and sympathetic adaptation of the building’.
