Mann Island: Reconnecting the city to its historic waterfront
Architect Matt Brook talks about the innovative, yet sensitively designed Mann Island scheme, which has not only been commercially successful but has also won many design accolades.
Sitting adjacent to Liverpool’s world-renowned ‘Three Graces’, the award-winning Mann Island scheme reconnects the city centre to its historic waterfront via a sequence of three new buildings and public spaces.
It sits at the heart of Liverpool’s Mercantile World Heritage site and is a truly mixed use regeneration project, comprising: 363 apartments, retail and leisure space, Grade A BREEAM Excellent office space and a covered public realm that includes an internal exhibition area.
The highly successful project was achieved through Broadway Malyan’s rigorous design approach and by knowing the site, the city and its psyche, a scheme was designed that has not only been commercially successful but has also won many design accolades.
