OMI WIN WIRRAL WATERS ‘POP UP’ VILLAGE COMPETITION

OMI have been selected to advance their competition winning designs for a ‘Pop Up’ village at Egerton Square adjacent to Wirral Metropolitan College. The project will incorporate a restaurant, food hub, retail space, gallery, workshop spaces and outdoor entertainment space, centred around a new public square. The scheme will provide local amenities for the emerging Four Bridges quarter of Peel Holdings’ Wirral Waters Masterplan.

The winning solution places a collection of modular prefabricated dwelling like forms around a new public square. The gable fronted ‘house shaped’ modules can be arranged in single or double storey configuration to provide a range of different sized spaces and are designed to reinforce the idea of a village.

The competition winning scheme is currently being tested with potential occupiers and will be submitted for planning approval later in 2017.

31 Booth Street Office Transformation

31 Booth Street is a Grade 2 listed office building in the upper King Street Conservation area, which forms part of the traditional commercial centre of Manchester

The transformation of the building re-orientates the main entrance and provides a large welcoming lobby and reception area. The office accommodation has been fully refurbished and improved through maximising light into the office spaces, achieved by increasing ceiling heights and opening up previously obscured arched window heads. The offices are supported by upgraded facilities including full air conditioning, new WC layouts, shower and cycle storage.

The building comprises 25,000 sq. ft of commercial office space and 3,500 sq. ft of A3 restaurant / café space.
