After extensive fire damage a Victorian Gothic style semi-detached dwelling, which has previously been used as a social club, is converted to 11 self-contained apartments with views over historic Birkenhead Park. The history of the building, as the home of Sandy Irvine, who perished in the 1922 ascent of Everest, was crucial in our thinking to preserve this heritage asset.

To enable the project to be a commercial success, new dwellings and apartments have been created to the perimeter of the park, with a design philosophy based around sustainability and complimenting the existing parkland setting.
