New Bird Street is located within the Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool, otherwise known as the Creative Quarter. The development will see 156 apartments built with an internal courtyard.
The design draws from the historical industrial use of the Baltic Triangle area and the many mills that occupied it. The building looks to restore the urban edge to the surrounding streets and sets up a perimeter block with an internal courtyard. The pitched roof form incorporated into the design is a distinctive element within the area both historically and now through the modern industrial sheds of the Baltic Creative Units. The dense massing is broken down through a series of larger carvings creating external terraces and deep balconies.
The ground floor will be commercial space, specifically aimed at creative industries which looks to relate to the nearby Baltic Creative. The units will form a relationship with the internal courtyard creating a vibrant space for residents and commercial occupiers alike.
