India Buildings, Liverpool

Described as Liverpool’s pre-eminent merchants’ palace, India Buildings is jaw dropping in scale, ambition and detail.

No mean challenge, then, to convert its Grade II listed banking hall in to a modern, open-plan office space.

Falconer Chester Hall’s design created a new mezzanine floor which added 50 per cent to the net usable space whilst complementing the elegant proportions of the interior. The minimal architectural style of the new floor accentuated the quality of the original ornamentation, with the original service counters, stonework, decorative detailing and chandeliers being sensitively restored.
