Constructed within the Mossley Hill Conservation Area, the parkland surrounding the University of Liverpool's Greenbank strudent residences was gifted to the university by the Rathbone family in 1939, and still offers a unique environment today. Crucially the designs for the new buildings, including use of GEODE MX Curtain Walling and other Technal systems respond sympathetically to the verdant setting.
The Greenbank Residences replace outdated buildings and have been arranged around three landscaped courtyards, rising from five to eigth storeys in height, creating 1,370 new en-suite bedrooms.
This project utilised 2,000m² of GEODE MX Curtain Walling, FY65 Windows and PY55 Doors - all offering high thermal performance and finished in Matt Anthracite Grey polyester powder coat.
Project Architect Luke Green commented: “The materials, scale and massing of the design have been developed to reflect both the character of the conservation area, and the distinctive mature landscape of the Greenbank site. The overall effect is of a series of distinct blocks with a shared architectural language that balances modernity with contextual references, allowing improved sightlines into the park landscape, and reinforcing the setting of Greenbank House.”
