The completed Phase II of Liverpool Science Park for Neptune Developments / Liverpool Science Park Company occupies a sensitive site on Brownlow Hill, sitting directly adjacent to Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Liverpool John Moores University new Design Academy.
Innovation Centre 2, as it is named, provides a four storey grade-A office building with 3600 sq m of high quality, flexible office accommodation, clad in natural stone, with extensive glazing maximising views to the cathedral grounds.
The office building is modernist and contextual, using limestone to complement the architecture and materiality of the cathedral. The scheme also integrates with its surroundings through carefully designed landscaping, which improves the public realm adjacent to Lutyens Crypt.
The scheme sets high ecological standards with an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating, the first building in Liverpool city centre to achieve this.
