LIVERPOOL’S HISTORIC EXCHANGE COURT UNDERGOES MAJOR REFURBISHMENT
Bruntwood Works has completed a major internal refurbishment of Exchange Court in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district.
The Grade II-listed building, adjacent to Liverpool Town Hall, has undergone thorough renovation of its common areas, including entrance halls, corridors and toilet facilities.
Its signature ‘cantilevered’ staircase with timber balustrade, which wraps through the building, has also received a vibrant but sympathetic new colour scheme that complements Exchange Court’s classical heritage.
MgMaStudio designed the scheme and supported Bruntwood Works in securing listed building consent for the works.
Colin Forshaw, regional director at Bruntwood Works, said: “Exchange Court is a beautiful, historic building in an excellent location and is one of the jewels of our Liverpool portfolio.
“The building is home to an established community of businesses and our aim was to give them a fresh, progressive environment that would also amplify the building’s rich heritage to make it an even more attractive place to work. We hope our customers are as delighted with the outcome as we are.”
Julie Johnson, chair of Liverpool Commercial District BID, said: “Exchange Court plays a central role in the social and physical fabric of the Commercial District and it is exciting to see Bruntwood continuing to invest in this wonderful space.”
Mathew Ashton, director at MgMaStudio, said: “The scheme was designed to amplify the sculptural staircases on the principal elevation. Internally, visual structure in the decorative paint scheme, feature lighting and planting deliver a character refurbishment to the entrance, staircases, and communal areas.”
