Alder Hey Children’s Health Park, Liverpool

About the project

The building rises out of the park on approach with an undulating profile, making it instantly recognisable and a striking and iconic gateway to Liverpool.

Three open fingers radiate out from the atrium concourse that forms the hospital’s public hub. These fingers of clinical space alternate with gardens, intertwining building and landscape. Central to our idea was ensuring that the majority of rooms (whether for children or staff) enjoy park views and that gardens and terraces are equally accessible to all.

This film, produced by myself for and with BDP, was filmed over a number of months, during pre and post open visits.
