Project Summary

Realising an “ambitious vision” in a “spectacular way”, The Copper House is now a landmark addition to Liverpool’s iconic waterfront. The collection of 383 premium apartments, offering stunning views across the River Mersey and Albert Dock, encapsulates the “optimism and ambition” of the city. The blend of one, two and three bedrooms, supplemented by an inviting entrance courtyard, lounge, fully equipped gym and 16th floor garden, have created a “new standard” for the quality of residential living. Our early involvement, and close collaboration with Panacea Properties throughout the journey, were crucial to the success of this project. Collectively, we positively influenced the design, the construction methodology and the delivery programme.

The detail

The Copper House has “set a new benchmark” for the standard of rental living in Liverpool. Located on the Strand, a key arterial route in the city, the scheme complements the historic surroundings and completes the composition of waterfront buildings. Designed by Leach Rhodes Walker architects, it was constructed around a concrete frame structure, with off-site bathroom pods and system façade designed to withstand marine environment conditions. The multi-storey development, based around a front courtyard at ground level and landscaped podium to the rear, includes a range of high quality apartments, associated communal space and a private gym, alongside 1,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial units. In addition to the panoramic views from the roof top, residents also benefit from additional facilities such as a garden space with flexible and fixed seating, booth seating areas with fire pits and fire tables, an outdoor covered kitchen with BBQ, and a multi-use central space suitable for events or exercise. This area is enclosed by 2m high glass balustrading to provide weather protection.

“We were ambitious in the vision we set out for The Copper House, and to see it realised in such a spectacular way is something the entire team is very proud of. This has been a long, challenging scheme, but the commitment to get every detail right has paid off considerably. Liverpool now has a sought after residential development that encapsulates the optimism and ambition of the city. The delivery of the project by GRAHAM has been first class.”
