Hope Street Hotel, Liverpool

Hope Street Hotel Liverpool Projects Ridge & Partners LLP

Built in circa 1860 in the style of a Venetian palazzo, Hope Street Hotel has unique style and charm. It was renovated in 2003 into 48 simple, natural, contemporary and comfortable hotel rooms and a restaurant. More recently, the private owner wished to expand and refurbish the boutique hotel, whilst retaining its character and historic features.

Ridge was appointed to a project that added 38 bedrooms, new reception and guest areas and rooftop conference facilities. The neighbouring building, a former police headquarters, provided the core of the £4.5 million extension to the hotel.

The extension is a partial refurbishment of the existing three-storey concrete framed building, with a steel and timber framed structure adding four more floors. The elevations are principally frameless glazing with a limestone clad frame, fronted by a free standing obelisk, which creates a sense of harmony between the hotel and its heritage surroundings.

The client had very exacting standards in terms of both quality and cost. This meant that the design team had to focus on the client’s very specific requirements, including remaining faithful to the unique style of Hope Street Hotel, whilst producing a design that could be built within the budget constraints.

Ridge ensured that this was achieved. First, our experts worked closely with the design team to evolve the design with the client every step of the way. When the contractor joined the project, a bespoke method was then developed to provide the client with a mechanism for his continued involvement in the contractor’s development of the design. This successful approach included contractor-incentivised target cost mechanisms.
